Shhh: The Musical

Enthusiasm let down by unoriginal script and forgettable songs

There is little doubting the enthusiasm of this young cast, as they do their best with a ‘romcom’ script about finding love in a bookshop. Sadly their energy is largely wasted on a script lacking in originality and punch. The characters are roundly unlikeable, side stories are left limply hanging and the songs are totally forgettable. Shhh just about covers it.

Eight friends, a love triangle, sibling rivalry, jealousy, betrayal, friendship and a little evil thrown in… Written by Dan Greavey and Alison Telfer and performed by talent from Aberdeen, Scotland, this original, modern musical about everyday folk in a small town will have you laughing, crying and shhh-ing from beginning…
