Songwriter and lyricist Charlie Fink, former frontman of the highly successful band Noah and the Whale, multi-award winning playwright David Greig and director Max Webster have teamed up to present Cover My Tracks, a unique production intertwining music and theatre.
It premiered at London’s The Old Vic in June, and is now captivating audiences throughout the UK wherever it plays - and it arrives at The Stables for a two night stay next week (September 26 & 27).
A two-hander starring Fink himself, Cover My Tracks tells the tale of an idealistic young songwriter attempting to write a 21st century pop masterpiece, who suddenly vanishes without a trace. Might his personal songbook be the key to unlocking the mystery?
It ran at The Old Vic in June, followed by an outing at the Latitude Festival. Now Milton Keynes gets in on the act as a part of the regional tour.
The theatrical production of Cover My Tracks premiered in tandem with the release of Charlie Fink’s debut solo album which was issued in June.
As the lead singer-songwriter for the band Noah and the Whale, Charlie Fink sold over a million albums and headlined at notable venues around the world, including a sold-out show at the Royal Albert Hall.
He was the producer of Laura Marling’s Mercury Prize nominated album Alas, I Cannot Swim and has written and produced music for artists including Charlotte Gainsbourg, Foxes, Rhodes and Eliot Sumner.
Fink’s initial foray into the theatre was also a collaboration with David Greig on their production of Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax, which debuted at The Old Vic in 2015 and was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Entertainment and Family show.
Now returning with a brand new production that brings together the experience of a live gig and a modern folk tale, Cover My Tracks will showcase the artistic versatility of its protagonists, bringing a truly entertainingshow to lovers of music, theatre and the arts nationwide.
