Piccadilly with the Brief Encounter Duo
Age Range: 12+ (under 18s must be accompanied by an adult)
The Brief Encounter Duo presents…Piccadilly, a silent film screening with a live music accompaniment.
Using nine different instruments, the duo play vintage jazz and silent film music complementing the unfolding drama. This unique show has received wonderful reviews and is not to be missed!
Screen goddess Anna May Wong sizzles as Shosho, a scullery maid who rises to stardom in the glitzy Piccadilly nightclub in London. This leads to a strange tale of jealousy, betrayal, forbidden love and a mysterious murder. This classic British film was a rare success on both sides of the Atlantic despite the advent of ‘Talkies’ two years earlier.
“Piccadilly – an exquisite evening’s entertainment”
“Your skilful musical backing of the movie enhanced the experience beautifully!”
” …truly an unexpected and delightful surprise.”
“By the evening’s end, I felt I had experienced a classic silent film in the way its very first audiences had done, almost a hundred years ago.”
