'If in the future, life itself ever had to be experienced through art - let's say because of a necessary curfew to avoid the effects of radiation or pollution - a vast global network would be required. Would rock have a place or not?' — Pete Townshend


Lifehouse is Pete Townshend's extraordinary playscript, originally begun as a sequel to Tommy in 1971. Widely believed to be abandoned, the play remained close to Townshend's heart and he has been working on it ever since. Now at last complete, the script ...

Overview

'If in the future, life itself ever had to be experienced through art - let's say because of a necessary curfew to avoid the effects of radiation or pollution - a vast global network would be required. Would rock have a place or not?' — Pete Townshend


Lifehouse is Pete Townshend's extraordinary playscript, originally begun as a sequel to Tommy in 1971. Widely believed to be abandoned, the play remained close to Townshend's heart and he has been working on it ever since. Now at last complete, the script portrays one man's desperate search for his daughter, who has gone missing and is presumed dead. Drawn through the industrial wastes of Britain back to the city from which he once hoped to escape, Ray is magnetised by the voice of a pirate DJ, calling the like-minded and lost to the Lifehouse - a massive, subversive music event.

This visionary and apocalyptic play addresses the spiritual consequences of our move away from physical human congregation to digital networking, and examines the increased power that music may have.

    My son was thrilled

    My 19 year old son has become very interested in The Who. I had never heard of the Lifehouse Chronicles and told ME about it. I don't think he thought it would even occur to me to look for this but he was thrilled to receive this book.

    Tommy Can You Hear Me?

    Lifehouse shows the writing genius of Mr. Townsend. The very idea 'Lifehouse' was considered a 'lost' work lends to the prolific work of this classic rocker. I have enjoyed this book many times and with each read, I find new reasons to like it all over again. I have been a fan of his work as a solo artist, and of course, with The Who for many years and have always been entertained. However, the recent sell-out of his original recordings for commercials is very troublesome. It is sad that such a respected body of work will be remembered for car ads.
