Grace Taylor presents Music and Freedom at BEAM

Director, Writer

Not content with being one of the most talented young directors out there right now, Grace is also a terrific writer with a nose for a fantastic story.

Very excited that she and Tim Gilvin are adapting Zoë Morrison’s award-winning novel Music and Freedom and will present their work at BEAM Showcase next week.

Alice Haywood is a woman in her 70s who, despite growing up as an incredibly accomplished pianist and moving from Australia to London to study at the Royal Academy of Music, found herself in an abusive and controlling marriage, unable to exercise any control over her own life. Now, with the recent death of her husband – and through a friendship with her younger neighbour, Emily – Alice refinds her purpose, and goes on a journey to rediscover herself.
