Musical Direction By David Shrubsole
With Simon Green

If you could sit a 21 year old version of yourself down and share with them the surprises that their life will bring... what would you say? So, This Then Is Life explores paths untrod, mistakes repeated and ridiculous responses to an ever changing world. 

More soiree than cabaret - Simon Green and musical director, David Shrubsole, cast their uniquely British gaze over life's rude awakenings. As in their Drama Desk nominated Traveling Light, they concoct a theatrical marriage of word, music and truths that aim to transport you to a former, more innocent incarnation of yourself. 

An entertaining evening in the company of such diverse and diverting British personalities as Noel Coward, Rudyard Kipling, Daphne du Maurier, Dillie Keane, Lily Allen, A.E. Housman, Flanders and Swann, Victoria Wood, P.G. Wodehouse, Philip Larkin, Julian Slade and Dorothy Reynolds - and others, including a few American friends!
