Multi award-winning duo HOUSE OF BLAKWELL return to VAULT Festival with the first outing of their new comedy mucical I Have a Bad Feeling About This. Following on from sell-out success at VAULT, Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe festivals composer / performer duo Harry Blake and Alice Keedwell (the team hit shows We Can Make You Happy and House Party) are back with a show about anxiety disorders… with show tunes, tap-dancing and woodwind battles.
Alice is newly married, has quit her job and moved to Berkhamsted (it’s in Hertfordshire) and it’s the best thing she’s ever done! She is going to be the woman she’s always wanted to be, cool and calm and free. She’s going to leave her self-loathing and destructive old friend anxiety firmly behind her and make NEW friends and they will LOVE the new her. BUT…. her old friend anxiety has other ideas. Will she win the battle and leave anxiety behind forever?
Alice has wanted to make a show about anxiety for some time and only with the realisation that anxiety wasn’t ‘her’, just something that affected her, did they find the way to make a show about one woman’s struggle with anxiety in an honest and funny way.
Drawing inspiration from the bright, heightened but every-day world of TV shows Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Ally McBeal HOUSE OF BLAKEWELL bring their trademark brand of musical theatre heartfelt audience interactions to create this new musical comedy show.
