In order to draw inspiration for his magnum opus, John Rawls travels back through time to converse (in song) with a selection of political philosophers, including Plato, Locke, Rousseau and Mill. But the journey is not as smooth as he hoped: for as he pursues his love interest, the beautiful student Fairness, through history, he must escape the evil designs of his libertarian arch-nemesis, Robert Nozick, and his objectivist lover, Ayn Rand.. Will he achieve his goal of defining Justice as Fairness?
The world’s first feature-length musical about political philosophy showcases a script steeped in drama, humour and romance - with a musical score that covers everything from rap battles to power ballads. "A Theory of Justice: The Musical!" is a light-hearted, tongue-in-cheek, camp and intellectually profound addition to the musical theatre canon.
The show was first performed in Oxford from 30th January to February 2nd 2013. The run sold out a week before opening night and got 5-star reviews across the board. The live soundtrack and the film of the Oxford production are now available for purchase. This summer the show is going on tour, performing in London and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Other companies, schools and universities will be able to license the show to do their own performances from October 1st, 2013 - applications officially open from July 1st.
