Oysters (Oysters Creatives)

Oysters (Oysters Creatives)

A new dark comedy with live music shining a powerful spotlight on composer Johannes Brahms. At a party to celebrate the first performance of his Violin Concerto the composer’s genius is overshadowed by his self-destructive ego. On his quest for perfection we meet a mesmerizing gallery of characters - the arthritic, embittered and ageing Clara Schumann; the mad, jealous unstable virtuoso Joachim; the pompous and waspish critic Hanslick; and the gentle friend and disciple Von Herzogenberg. And at the centre of it all is the question ‘Why art…and what price do we pay for it?’

Performed by an award-winning cast including Nicholas Collett (RSC, West End), Neil Salvage (RNT, Old Vic) and Eleanor Ryan as Violinist – directed by Amy Bonsall, designed by Maddy Sinclair
