Douglas Hodge Musical Meantime

Douglas Hodge has just been talking to Ken Bruce on BBC Radio 2 and mentioned working on his musical Meantime when he stops playing Willy Wonka and leaves Charlie & the Chocolate Factory on 17th May.

Hodge has He has released two albums of his own compositions: Cowley Road Songs and Nightbus which won the Stiles and Drewe 2012 Best New Song Award for Powercut from his musical Meantime which is a love story set across 50 years. He co-wrote it with Aschlin Ditta in November 2008. Ditta is an old friend of his from the National Youth Theatre who wrote a film he did called Scenes of a Sexual Nature.

Meantime was taken up a few years ago by producer Matthew Byam Shaw and workshopped with Sheila Hancock, Catherine Tate, Lara Pulver, David Haig and Jason Pennycooke (who was in La Cage aux Folles with him at the time).
