Knock at the door
The ominous menacing creak of the floor
You’ll scratch and you’ll scratch till you’re bloody and raw
The Sandman’s coming to get you.”
The Sandman is a brand new musical thriller about friendship, art and the supernatural, loosely based on the short story by E. T. A. Hoffmann. Nat, a talented fashion designer, is stalked by the figure of the Sandman, a character from her childhood mysteriously connected to her parent’s death. As the Sandman strengthens his grip on Nat, reality and nightmares begin to blur.
Created in partnership with the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation Bridge Company, this funny and gripping new musical features high fashion, jump scares, and a fresh contemporary score.
