About Mood Music

A play about the psychodrama of creating sound: playwright Joe Penhall premieres Mood Music at The Old Vic as part of the theatre’s bicentenary season.

Penhall is best-known for his musical Sunny Afternoon, inspired by The Kinks, and his state-of-the-nation drama Blue/Orange. Roger Mitchell who has directed ‘Notting Hill’ and Consent at the National Theatre will now direct Penhall’s Old Vic debut.

WHO'S IN IT?: MOOD MUSIC CAST

Mood Music stars Ben Chaplin as Bernard, a Producer.

What's the story?

Mood Music invites its audience into an ultra-modern recording studio in London. Two songwriters, their lawyers and their therapists argue about music and the making of it.

There is music for every occasion, from dynamic dance music to the soothing harmonies of choir hymns. Music has a profound affect upon mood, we know this, but what about the psychology of actually creating those melodies? How does this affect someone?

Mood Music is a vital new drama about the unseen emotions and struggles of the music industry.
