Co-producers Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Royal & Derngate, Northampton, and Northern Stage, in association with Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse, have today announced that the world premiere stage adaptation of Alice Sebold’s global bestselling novel, The Lovely Bones, will open at Royal & Derngate on 1 September 2018.
Adapted by Bryony Lavery and directed by Melly Still, the production will then transfer to partner theatres Everyman Liverpool, Northern Stage, Newcastle and Birmingham Repertory Theatre, followed by a tour to the New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich.
The Lovely Bones tells the story of young girl Susie Salmon, who is just like any other girl. She wants to be beautiful, adores her charm bracelet and has a crush on a boy from school. There’s one big difference though – Susie is dead.
Susie can only observe while her family cope with their grief in their different ways. Her father, Jack is obsessed with identifying the killer. Her mother, Abigail is desperate to create a brighter future. And her sister, Lindsay is discovering the opposite sex with experiences that Susie will never know.
Susie is desperate to help them and there might be a way of reaching them.
