Paul Heaton The 8th

7-9 July 2011
World premiere  7 July 2011

Premiered at MIF11, Paul Heaton’s The 8th is a song in eight chapters – a look at the seven deadly sins through a series of scenes in a poor neighbourhood, a place where a new and thoroughly modern sin, the 8th, is able to insinuate itself into every person’s life. Given a theatrical narrative by award-winning playwright Che Walker (Royal Court Theatre, the Young Vic) and directed by Paines Plough’s Joint Artistic Director George Perrin, The 8th featured Heaton, Reg E Cathey (The Wire, House of Cards) and an array of guest singers, including King Creosote, Cherry Ghost’s Simon Aldred and Jacqui Abbot from the Beautiful South.
