I’m a young musical theatre director and filmmaker based in London.

I’ve done a production of Be more Chill and now I’m in pre production for Shrek the Musical.

After Shrek I really want to do an original musical about a story that is very special to me, the story of my grandmothers life.

During her life she had so much happen and it is the kind of story that just has to be immortalised and I think a musical would be the most beautiful medium for it.

I am not going to list everything that happened but to get an idea of what I mean this is one story from her life:

When my grandmother was a young woman living in Belgium, she was engaged to a strapping young lad with blonde curly hair, which is why everyone called him curly. When the Second World War broke loose she was separated from her family and sent to work a year on a german farm. When she was able to come back to Belgium she found out that to protect his family, her fiancée had no choice but to fight for the Germans, and so he did. She didn’t hear from him after a while and he was presumed dead in the war.
A lot of other stuff happened after that but when she was in her 70s, after a very eventful life, 7 sons and 1 daughter later, she opened the mailbox to find a letter from curly! He survived and had been living in Germany with a lovely wife and a son, but now he was dying from cancer and he wanted to meet her one last time. So my grandmother and my mom went to visit him and they talked about their lives... and years later my mom took me to curly’s grave and told me this story.

I just direct and produce, so I am looking for musicians and lyricists to work on this project together and bring her life to the stage.

There is no set deadline and the creative direction is still wide open so this will be a collaborative journey between the music writer and me.

You would obviously get paid and receive royalties and we will discuss the details before signing anything.
