Rehab is the third of three semi-staged, rehearsed readings in the From Page to Stage 2016 season. It is a book in hand presentation of the full show.
Rehab or Prison?
Kid pop, the world’s biggest pop ego, has no choice. However, his manager Malcolm can smell a killing and needs cameras and action inside PDQ.
Welcome to The Glade: Cross dressing room mates, tanning addicts, group therapy and terrible food. It’s all too much! Kid needs a fix. Meet Lucy, she’s gorgeous, sensitive. It’s lust at first sight but Lucy has a secret, one that will plunge them both into a life threatening dilemma.
Join us in Rehab on a poptastic, rock bottom to redemption journey of heart, hips, boom-boom belly laughs and lightning quips. Hearts must be broken and songs must be sung from a stunning score that will live on in the heart and mind as we and our deeply loveable cast of characters seek the ultimate goal: love, peace, serenity and great choreography.
Welcome to Rehab.
