Elliot Davis is the fourth British musical theatre composer to be celebrated as part of the series, with previous virtual concerts celebrating the music of Welsh married award-winning composers Daniel and Laura Curtis (watch here) and Scottish award-winning composer Finn Anderson (watch here), who was recently announced as The Cameron Mackintosh Resident Composer from April 2020.

The series forms part of the Barn Theatre’s Behind The Barn Door live streaming service, set up in March when the theatre had to temporarily close following government guidance.
