THE LOST DISC Comes To Soho Theatre

THE LOST DISC Comes To Soho Theatre

The Lost Disc is a riotous quest for the holy grail of recorded music. Part gig, part play, part comedy show it showcases an alternative history of popular music and is strumming its way to the Soho Theatre stage from 8th-27th October 2018.

Written by Will Adamsdale, Ed Gaughan and Tom Parry, The Lost Disc is a new musical / comedy / play hybrid which sees discredited NME journalist Stu Morecambe searching for a legendary lost recording of three of the 20th century's finest forgotten musicians. But does it even exist? Perhaps it doesn't matter if the stories he uncovers - spanning all of modern music - are this extraordinary and the music this good! But as Stu delves deeper into the lives of 60s folk-rock dandy Roger Lefevre, forgotten Crooner royal Tony Noel and the impossibly durable country legend A.P Williams, a picture starts to emerge of a mysterious brotherhood running deep through the grooves of recorded music that amazes even a hack as jaded as Stu, a picture that threatens to rob him of his career, his relationship, even his sanity....

Chock full of original songs, conspiracy theories and pop legends, The Lost Disc is what happens when Searching for Sugar Man, Spinal Tap and Raiders of The Lost Ark meet BBC 6Music.

Written by Will Adamsdale (Perrier Award Winner for Jacksons Way), Ed Gaughan (Peter Sellers Comedy Award nominee for Skeletons) and Tom Parry (triple Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee)

Additional material from the company

From an original idea by Will Adamsdale and Luke Ponte


Will Adamsdale

"Strange, original and blissfully funny" The Evening Standard on The Victorian in the Wall

"Adamsdale is creating a body of work that rides roughshod over the boundaries between comedy and theatre" Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

Ed Gaughan

"A startlingly energetic performance, he inhabits each character and voice absolutely, incorporating a talent for accents and impressions with hysterical physical comedy.....a surreal hybrid of theatre, stand-up comedy, film and jazz concert" - Alice Jones, Independent

"If original and intelligent Ed Gaughan doesn't already have a cult fan base already, they should really set one up." Claire Sawers, Metro.

Tom Parry

"Parry is Lord of Misrule" The Guardian

"Bundles along on a powerful tide of good humour guaranteed to make you feel good" Chortle

The London Snorkelling Team

"When music, image and comedy fuse, it becomes priceless ... The results are as brilliant as they are hilarious." Maddy Costa, The Guardian

"The London Snorkelling Team is a seriously quirky musical quartet, joined here by two animators and comic cults [Adamsdale and Gaughan]..... Hilarious." Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard
