Passports to the Promised Land

For Nitro. I wrote the book, music and lyrics for this show in 2001 (hear the songs in 'songwriter'). Directed by Graham Devlin, it tells the story of the recently dead Jordan Brown, still searching for his errant father even in his afterlife. Passports to the Promised Land is also about those of us who have travelled to live somewhere new; we think that the journey's ended when we arrive but that's usually just the beginning. 

 

The show opened at Greenwich Theatre then toured nationally before ending at Sheffield Lyceum.
