In the theatre, Wisbey has worked closely as a musical director, arranger, and sometimes composer alongside the award-winning director, Rufus Norris, on three productions for the Young Vic Theatre Company. The first, Sleeping Beauty, ran at the Young Vic itself in 2002, then transferred to the Barbican and then to the New Victory on Broadway. Hergé's Adventures of Tintin premiered at the Barbican two years later, followed by a tour and West End run in 2007. The other production was the World Premier of Tanya Ronder's acclaimed adaptation of the book Vernon God Little. Recently Duncan Wisbey became noticed on Radio 1 with the U.K's shortest song to reach the U.K top 40 with the song "The Ladies' Bras" which was 36 seconds long and reached number 27 in U.K top 40.
