Fall to the Floor’ is a musical with an edge! Think ‘Skins’, ‘Glee’ and ‘Shameless’ all remixed into 25 minutes of musical celluloid.
Consisting of eight dynamic characters: Carlo (Teon Blake) the Prince of the Street, Ivan (Ernest Reid) his slave driving boss, Shawn (Anthony Young) Carlo’s best friend and coke-sniffing playboy, Paddy ‘Spits’ (ex-hustler), Melody (Jess Murray) the self absorbed middle-class wannabe, Zara-the-Diva (Jaye Blake), Miya (Tagz) Melody’s crutch, Rom the Poetic Assassin and Bushkin the wheeling and dealing promoter.
Through these characters we explore and hurtle through 24 ‘London’ hours witnessing the overwhelming force of both positive and negative energy, inhaling the natural and artificial highs and feeling the heart wrenching lows.
A buzzing force of high energy surrounds them, drawing them to a bar bursting at the seams with musicality and free expression. It is here Carlo will discover the truth about his sister ‘Star’ and her sudden disappearance and where this ‘scenes’ raison d’être changes forever!
