A Scot and a Northerner, they meet in the country’s capital, because that’s where people once told them to go. Now they’re lost in a haze of lockdowns, love stories and loose ends. London is cold, losing people aches and love stings like a motherfucker. But when you meet the right person, it all fades away. They fall for each other through their music. And they fall out that way too. With original songs such as ‘I Like You, Break Up With Your Boyfriend For Me’, ‘Cucumber’ and ‘All This Time’, The Off Key is an unflinchingly honest portrait of a modern relationship. A genre-bending theatrical experience, it explores love, loss and the quest for truth in a world that doesn’t seem all that interested in truth anymore. Scott Mackie is a Scottish singer-songwriter and playwright. This is his third play, but the first to feature original music.
