Hello there
Last week, I went to see a musical called Standing at the Sky’s Edge. It’s set in my adopted city of Sheffield and features the songs of Richard Hawley, a Sheffield native whose music I’ve always loved. 
It was brilliant. Not just an homage to the place I’ve called home for almost 20 years, but a stark reminder that politics matters, places change and there is always hope. Somewhere. If you search for it. 
I’m sure they will release a cast recording at some point, but if you’re interested, someone has made a Spotify playlist of Hawley’s original versions, minus the new songs he wrote for the show. 
I think that Coles Corner is in my top 10 favourite songs by anyone ever, and you can’t go wrong with As The Dawn Breaks

4 “whys” I ask myself when reading a manuscript: - why did the characters do that?
- Why did they enter the story at that point?
- Why do we only have to know this much?
- Why did the story end there?
If the writer doesn’t know, it probably needs addressing.
