The Phase

Written by Zoe Morris & Meg McGrady

In Development

The Phase is an award-winning pop-punk musical written by Meg McGrady & Zoe Morris about friendship, young love and singing loud when others want to silence you.

It’s 2014, Gay marriage has just been legalised in the UK, and Rowan and their LGBTQ+ bandmates want to sing it from the rooftops. But their all-girl Catholic school has other ideas. Disbanded and reprimanded, the group has a choice: do they bow down, retreat, and let the school rules divide them? Or, through all the angsty mess of adolescence, do they unite and fight back to make a change?

The show started in 2018 when writers Meg McGrady and Zoe Morris met at the musical theatre writing course, Book, Music and Lyrics (BML). Since then, the show has won the Stiles & Drewe ‘Vision, Voice & Potential’ award in 2020, been featured on musical theatre podcasts, performed at The Other Palace and gained over 67,000 TikTok followers! Writing from first-hand experience has enabled the show to really resonate with thousands of young people across the world through the power of social media. 

 

The Phase is a coming of age story, filled with catchy pop songs that you won’t be able to get out of your head! A hugely exciting piece of new British musical theatre written by two upcoming, award-winning writers.
