The world premiere of the anticipated new British musical, FROM HERE, from new writers Ben Barrow and Lucy Ireland, will run at London’s Chiswick Playhouse from 1st to 31st July 2021.
Directed by Annabelle Hollingdale, the production will star Grace Mouat and Andrew Patrick-Walker, alongside Nicola Espallardo and Aidan Harkins.
Do we long more for a happy ending or for a new beginning? From Here: A New British Musical explores how reaching for the end of one chapter, or the beginning of the next, may not always provide us with the results we expect. From struggling to find friends in a school playground, to first dates, to learning to live again after finding yourself alone, these often musically- interwoven stories tell of characters trying to decide whether to run headfirst into trying again or whether to stay put and hold fast.
From new writers Ben Barrow and Lucy Ireland, this contemporary song-cycle is a poetically conversational guide.
FROM HERE offers the perfect opportunity for audiences to reflect on where they are and where they’re going. And as we navigate out of a pandemic, it offers a chance to appreciate the middle of a moment too.
