The Ballad of the Cosmo Café
St Peter’s Church Hall, Belsize Park, London
Conceived and directed by Pamela Howard, OBE. An imagined immersive ‘singspiel’ recreating this much-loved café in Finchley Road, in St Peter’s Church Hall, Belsize Road. Based on selected memories and stories from the Cosmo research group and translated into lyrics by the Cosmo writers group.
Audiences will enter the Cosmo Café as customers, sit at the vacant tables and the performance will begin. Eight of UK’s finest senior performers tell their stories in speech and song.
Set to music by collaborators from Royal College of Music, supported and produced by students and Cosmo collaborators from Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. A 1hr.30 event.
Please note: The Ballad of the Cosmo Café will be performed twice, in the afternoon at 3.00pm and in the evening at 7.00pm.
