Cult cabaret duo Bourgeois and Maurice will premiere their new musical Insane Animals at HOME Manchester this February with a two week run.
The larger than life production features time travel, aliens, political and environmental commentary all wrapped up in a musical.
The alternative performers Bourgeois and Maurice (George Heyworth and Liv Morris) continue HOME’s spring 2020 theatre season with the production featuring a cast of eight. The high-energy low-brow actor-musicians are working under the direction of Philip McMahon who has been named as Creative Director for Ireland’s entry in the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest.
What is Insane Animals at HOME Manchester about?
The production is a time-travelling musical comedy in which two glamourous aliens arrive from a faraway galaxy to rescue present day earth from political, environmental and social doom!
Insane Animals marks the first time satirical double act Bourgeois and Maurice are writing for a large cast, tackling bigger themes and with a full band.
Musical director for the production is composer, performer and multi-instrumentalist Victoria Falconer (recently nominated as Best Musical Director in the Sydney Theatre Awards for her work on hit musical Once).
The eight-strong cast features Australian actor and multi-platinum selling artist with The Overtones Lockie Chapman. Emer Dineen, a graduate of the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama also features; as does actor / musician Evie Jones; Kayed Mohamed-Mason, who starred in Ruth Jones’ Welsh Valleys-set comedy-drama Stella; and multi-instrumentalist Jarrad Payne.
