It is the present day and the Townfolk peer into the archaeological dig fascinated by what has always been under their very feet. Abi, one of the archaeologists, packs up and hurries to view a flat, but not just any property, it’s one she has a connection to in her past. When she arrives she is greeted by the current owner, Sam, who shows around…
“House of Old Wounds” is sung by townsfolk ensemble of Fred Pollard, Megan Swaisland, Issie Webb, Matt Hough, Emily Dear, Jeandanel Antwi, Alex Kirkham, Maria Langford, Miriam Windsor, Nicole Connell, Bethan Lock, Ellie Lunt, Alice Hoyle, Philippa Leadbetter & Martin Day.
There are also solo sections from Sabrina Hinchliffe (as Adult Abi) and Darren Street (as Sam).

Sorry. No performance video from this one. But there is a full cast ‘simulated’ soundtrack available over at the Sharp to the Flat site.
‘Sharp to the Flat’ is a new musical about Truth, Lies and Why – A young widow, trying to re-establish herself, is helped and tricked, in equal measure, by her new landlord. Whilst she is figuring out what the truth is, nobody sees that her young daughter is swallowing all the scraps that spill over. All the while their friends, colleagues and families would be helping, if they didn’t have agendas of their own.
