J'ACCUSE...! - THE PASSIONS OF EMILE ZOLA

Petula Clark and Dee Shipman began writing their musical based on the life of French author Emile Zola in 1988, while their first musical Someone Like You was in pre-production. Although the musical was demo'd in 1988 and 1991 a production never came to fruition and the score remained incomplete.

In autumn 2010 work began on a brand new studio concept recording, assembling an all star cast of West End performers. Recording at London's prolific Angel Studios between January - March 2011, J'Accuse...! features orchestrations and musical direction by Paul Bateman (Sarah Brightman's musical director) and the voices of Dave Willetts, Jill Martin, Meredith Braun and Martyn Ellis.

The musical is currently in the pre-production stages, with a new book by Dee Shipman and direction by Dave Willetts. A production is envisaged for Winter 2011 / 2012.

Emile Zola is a passionate man - passionate against injustice, passionate about love! Also, a man divided ... between keeping his status and wealth, from his international writing success, and risking losing it all by standing up publicly against a conspiracy of lies in the Dreyfus affair: and divided too by passionate love for both women in his life ... Sandrine, his wife: and Jeanne, the mother of his two beloved children.
