All the Angels by Nick Drake
Directed by Lynne Parker

TUE 2 – THU 4 NOV 2021
Live at The Everyman

All the Angels is a new play by Nick Drake that tells the story of the world’s most popular choral work – Handel’s Messiah.

Dublin, 1742. A city emerging from a winter of famine and despair, looking towards the light.

The great composer Handel is the toast of the town, his masterpiece Messiah completed, the hall booked; but, in his desperate attempt to put a company of singers together he must work with an untrained voice, the celebrated stage actress Susannah Cibber. Gradually, he is seduced by the quality of her performance and the truth of her expression.

This joyous play, which will have its Irish premiere on The Everyman stage, tells the story of the world’s most popular choral work, from its fraught birth to its glorious outcome; a tale about the complicated, comedic business of putting on a show and the transformative power of music.

Post-Show Talk: Wed 3 Nov 2021
