The List

This is a new era musical in the spirit of Once,
using the power of music to carry a
deeper message about families, brothers
and long held scars that have changed
the lives of so many.

When rock journalist Steve Hadfield attempts to write the definitive story about the list of 10 songs that changed the world he turns to his little brother and legendary musician Sam Had for input and help. As they talk through the themes of change and play through the greatest songs of all time, they also face their own issues and in doing so are dragged towards a far deeper change – a change to how they relate to each other. This is a new era musical in the spirit of Once, using the power of music to carry a deeper message about families, brothers and long held scars that have changed the lives of so many. A show about human characters and family issues, The List presents the music that has changed the world as a powerful back drop to issues that reside in every sibling relationship and within every family. Ultimately, the show helps the audience realise that the world only ever changes when people change and that’s what the brothers have to face.
