National Theatre, Upper Ground, London, SE1 9PX
The London premiere of Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour at the National Theatre.
The award-winning production of Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour arrives at the National Theatre following a sell-out run at the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and a national tour.
Funny, sad and raucously rude, Our Ladies… is about six girls on the cusp of change. Adapted from Alan Warner’s brilliant novel The Sopranos by Lee Hall (Billy Elliot) and directed by Vicky Featherstone the show features a soundtrack of classical music and 70s pop rock, with music by Handel, Bach and ELO including the songs Mr Blue Sky, Don’t Bring Me Down, Long Black Road and more.
Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour runs from 8 August 2016 until 1 October 2016 at the National Theatre.
For six girls on the cusp of change, love, lust, pregnancy and death all spiral out of control in a single day.
Funny, sad, rude and beautifully sung, Our Ladies…. is a tribute to being young, lost and out of control.
The cast features Melissa Allan, Caroline Deyga, Karen Fishwick, Kirsty MacLaren, Frances Mayli McCann and Dawn Sievewright with musicians Amy Shackcloth, Laura Bangay, Becky Brass and Emily Linden.
Directed by Vicky Featherstone with Music Arrangement and Supervision by Martin Lowe, Design by Chloe Lamford, Lighting Design by Lizzie Powell and Choreography by Imogen Knight. Adaptation of Alan Warner’s novel The Sopranos by Lee Hall.
