The Cocktail Pianist - Brighton Fringe 2017

Sweet Waterfront - Waterfront 2

Mike Hatchard performs the story of Bernard Halfpen - the almost invisible pianist at the Luton Skyport Hotel. As he plays his anodyne melodies, he reveals a dark past, and how he might have been a great concert pianist had fate not had other plans. The original score reflects how Bernard overcomes an illogical fear of numbers, untimely seductions, too much education, a dabble into alcoholism, and an entirely understandable inability to cope with the pressure of piano competitions. Always musically compelling, frequently amusing, but often deeply serious and tender.
