Brand new British musical Little Sausage is to premiere in London this March.
From producer Tanya Truman the show is coming to The Other Palace Studio with a work-in-progress showcase on 4-5 March 2022 with tickets on sale now.
Directed by Annabelle Hollingdale (From Here, Spring Awakening), the hour-long production follows three years of development – and a few national lockdowns.
Little Sausage is a new verbatim musical about the nation’s most controversial sausage. It uses the real words of ‘real’ men to explore toxic masculinity, plant-based dating, and the game-changing Gregg’s vegan sausage roll.
The musical has music and lyrics by Joshua Fowley and book by Deborah Vogt.
Little Sausage follows a Yorkshire lad and how his relationship with friends and family changes during his journey from cheese addict to animal activist!
With words and lyrics comprised entirely of interviews with everyone from an Australian activist to a non-vegan who grew up in farming communities in Northern England, Little Sausage uses real words and folk-pop music to explore the myth that meat equals manliness.
Dan Bravo (he/him) will play Isaac, Owen Clayton (he/they) will play Junior / Dave / Ensemble and Joanna Clarke (she/her) will play Cassie / Elliot / Ensemble.
Tanya Truman, the producer of Little Sausage, said, “Coming from a performing background myself, I know how difficult it can be to get noticed for projects. As a producer, I am passionate about working with incredibly talented people. I work hard with my creative team to look at fresh talent instead of selective based on where they may have trained, what credits they have, or how many Instagram followers they have.
With Little Sausage being verbatim and 100% based on live interviews of people’s experiences with veganism, it was essential to find actors who were excellent multi rollers to embody these people as authentically as possible.”
Little Sausage runs at The Other Palace Studio on 4-5 March 2022 with tickets available online now from theotherpalace.co.uk/little-sausage/
