Venue: Upstairs

Haendel on the Estate is the story of George, a singing teacher hired in a south London school mainly because, like most students, she is Black. To broaden their horizons, she introduces them to Haendel's Messiah. We soon discover that she couldn’t be more different from them, which causes hilarious culture clashes that reveal just how misleading assumptions can be. Let’s just say she will need all her creativity and patience… and so will her students.
