Score cascades through time to tell the story of Hannah and Kirsty, two childhood friends who’ve been through everything together; nativity plays, playground fights, teen pregnancy, rubbish boyfriends, heroin addiction, missing dogs, and motherhood. There’s been some shit, that’s for sure – but then there’s the singing. You harmonize best with someone you know, you know? No matter what they put you through.

Written by the winner of the Ronald Duncan Prize, Lucy Bell, and with musical arrangements by Verity Standen (★★★★★ HUG, Time Out), Score features a capella songs and is inspired by the frank and often funny accounts of parents from Bournemouth Drug Treatment Centre about addiction, recovery and how they got their kids back.

“cunningly constructed and gloriously sung” – The Guardian
“There is undeniable talent on stage: Fitzpatrick-Milton’s subtle and sensitive acting truly hits the high notes too, balancing wonderfully with Simpson’s flair for comedy.” – A Younger Theatre

 

“Score is a wonderful show, one that realistically portrays drug users and ex-offenders as exactly like the rest of us – somewhere between stainless angels and evil, downtrodden monsters” – ★★★★ Exeunt

“Lucy Bell’s tight script rarely veers off course. Laugh-out-loud lines sit unapologetically beside the frustration of witnessing these two young women trying to save each other, but never quite managing to be in the same place at the same time” – ★★★★ The Public Reviews
