RADAR Performance: Lovesong

Sold out

Presented in association with the Bush Theatre as part of RADAR 2012

Oscar lives in the fast lane. He pays for sex and pays for drugs but there’s something missing. Brooding over what might have been, he is forced to reflect on his reckless lifestyle and is taken by surprise by finding love where he could never have expected…

Featuring his own music and lyrics, this unmissable one-man show is performed by soul legend Omar – founder of nu-classic British Soul, who again joins forces with award-winning writer/director, Ché Walker following their triumphant collaboration on the soul/funk musical Been So Long (Young Vic London, Latitude & Edinburgh Festivals).
