Louis Barabbas has been awarded funding by Arts Council England to record a soundtrack album of his new musical Jocasta and showcase the material at The Lowry in Salford.
The musical is loosely based on the myth of Oedipus but places the mother Jocasta centre stage, telling a story of power struggles, betrayal and media manipulation. In the album the title role will be played by Bridie Jackson; other performers include Rioghnach Connolly, Liz Green, Tom Hingley, Becca Williams and Felix Hagan.

The showcase event will take place on 29th April. Tickets available here.
