Synopsis

She cared for him, she understood him… And now she's gone. Two new plays from acclaimed rapper and playwright Testament (Black Men Walking). Orpheus in the Record Shop Orpheus is alone, playing tunes in his record shop. After a visitor leaves him an unexpected gift strange things start to happen and music, myth and reality collide. Together with Orpheus we go in search of something ancient, contemporary and hopeful. The Beatboxer A beatboxer goes into a call centre to run a training day. But the bosses have ulterior motives for him being there. Testament takes inspiration from the classical Greek myth of Orpheus, in a show that fuses spoken word and beatboxing with the musicians of the Orchestra of Opera North. Published alongside his radio play The Beatboxer which was shortlisted for The Imison Award, BBC Audio Drama Awards, these two plays are inspiring pieces of contemporary theatre. Orpheus in the Record Shop was broadcast as part of the #BBCLightsUp season on BBC television in 2021.
