First Piano on the Moon
First Piano on the Moon was premiered at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival to great audience and critic response. The show builds on Will’s repertoire of work focussed on piano playing and storytelling, specifically on his other children’s show Anatomy of the Piano (for beginners).
It is the story of a boy who daydreams of playing in front of an audience. When his dream comes true, he should be excited, but doubt creeps in, he questions his ability to play and now he has to play the big concert, the whole world will discover the truth.
Mozart’s music mingled and mangled for a show featuring an unlikely birthday invitation, a frantic chase through Salzburg, before the appearance of Wolfgang himself. What can Will glean from the Master?
“an immensely engaging storyteller who draws children and adults alike into every word”
All Edinburgh Theatre
“one man brought all the excitement, magic and joyfulness of childhood love of music to life, just with a piano and a school bag, and his enthusiasm was beautifully infectious”
Edinburgh Festivals Theatre
“the outrageous classical playing is hot and breathtaking, his audience are transported
to a Salzburg of the mind”
