Keppie Coutts – The Mysteries of Mad River: A Swamp-Folk Operetta

Award-winning songwriter Keppie Coutts presents ‘The Mysteries of Mad River: A Swamp-Folk Operetta’, an eccentric, Freudian, and sparkling piece of musical theatre, that is one-part cabaret, one-part murder mystery. ‘The Mysteries of Mad River’ revolves around the character of a lovable (but deranged) primary school teacher, singing her way through a town cursed with disappearing children. Coutts breaks the barriers of conventional songwriter performance, by stepping fully into the dark and riotous world of the characters she has created aided by the wonderful (and slightly macabre) drawings of Fiona McCabe. The swampy, honky-tonk, blues-folk narratives call on a musical ancestry that includes Nick Cave, Tom Waits, and Leonard Cohen. Having won the praise of peers and fans in the US (including a song produced by John Mayer), Coutts has joined forces with Anna Jahjah of Theatre Excentrique to bring the stories and characters to life (and death), in this dark comedy. A beautifully costumed and theatricalized musical performance you will not want to miss.

“Coutts’s songs marry soul and folk so gorgeously, you’ll cheer when they get stuck on endless repeat on the jukebox in your brain.” The Boston Globe.

Doors open at 6pm. The In-flight Bar & Diner will open at 6pm so you can enjoy a drink and delicious snacks.
