First look at Stephen Schwartz’s musical Working which recieves its European premiere at the Southwark Playhouse this week.

Schwartz’s musical is based on the best-selling book by Studs Terkels which contains interviews with ordinary American workers. The musical takes the audience through an average day from the perspective of these workers.

Directed by Luke Sheppard (In The Heights), the  cast features Gillian Bevan (Teachers, Holby City), Dean Chisnall (Shrek, Blood Brothers), Krysten Cummings (Rent), Siubhan Harrison (Guys and Dolls), Peter Polycarpou (City of Angels, Miss Saigon, Oklahoma) and Liam Tamne (Rocky Horror, Les Miserables,The Phantom of the Opera).

Working is playing a short run at Southwark Playhouse and is rumoured to be looking for a West End theatre.

Working runs until 8 July 2017 at Southwark Playhouse.
