Paul Heaton The 8th

Paul Heaton (The beautiful South, The Housemartins) has written one of the longest pop songs ever, The 8th, which was premiered at MIF11. It’s a song in eight chapters, a look at the seven deadly sins through a series of scenes taking place in a single neighbourhood, a poor neighbourhood, one where a new, 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 and Young Vic) and directed by Paines Plough’s joint artistic director George Perrin,The 8th featured a cast of performers from across musical genres who joined Heaton in the Pavilion Theatre for three very special shows.

Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival and Paines Plough.
