In this electropop, comedy musical, award winning comedian Lou Wall attempts to complete every unfinished task on her To-Do Lists from 2002–2020. That’s 923 tasks.

Lousical the Musical is an autobiographical, electropop, comedy musical about To-Do List anxiety. It’s a nuanced and electrifying foray into the world of procrastination and its roots in mental health but in a hilariously fun, mini-pop-concert kinda way. Duh.

Meet Lou Wall. From the moment she learned to write, she has been making To-Do Lists. On scraps of paper, in journals, in the notes app on her phone. Lou went back over all those lists and currently has a mortifying 923 items left unfinished from 2002–2020. These 923 items have been haunting her, it’s about time she finally checked off those boxes.

In this 60 minute, manic-musical-combustion, Wall will complete all 923 unfinished tasks including but not limited to;

Number 77 – Email Kate about cat sitting (from 2012) 
Number 423 – Do a training run for the half marathon (from 2018)
Number 712 – Buy mum a birthday present (from 2005)

Why? Because it’s never too late to get shit done.
