katzenmusik (Multiplay Drama)

By Tom Fowler

EPUB £7.99£6.40

A darkly comic story about social inequality and upheaval, told in reverse.

A viral video, a company capitalising on fear, prank calls, class divide and a cat memorial.

The increasing income gap between rich and poor has pushed the residents of Burnside Town to breaking point.

Tom Fowler's play katzenmusik was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in August 2017 by the Royal Court Youth Theatre.

Note to Perfomers: This play contains very strong language, and references to violence and suicide.

A free downloadable extract of the play is available from this page.

'katzenmusik (German, n.) caterwaul; a shrill howling or wailing noise (of a cat).'

Press Quotes

'A great way of getting young people to debate political and moral issues... putting on a show with a large cast of characters can be a daunting task, but this play was created with multi-roling in mind. Characters in the town can be played by anyone regardless of age, race, ability or gender... the play handles the problems surrounding young people with real heart - exploring why so many feel ignored. It's a piece of writing that, although timeless, taps into the modern political zeitgeist'
