Producer Paul Virides says today “Chris and Jon have written the most beautiful show, complemented perfectly by Ben’s stunning orchestrations. But no piece of theatre exists only on paper, and I’m thrilled at the team that have decided to jump in and join us on and off stage to give life to this 100% original, brand new British musical. Alice, Peter, Joaquin, Tori and Justin are individually and all together a fantastically talented group of people that bring so much to the table – and with Julie in the director’s chair, audiences at Southwark are in for a treat!”

The musical centres on Alex Shaw, played by Fearn, and follows her touring over two decades and multiple lovers. Billed as an uplifting story that questions how relationships can change over time and explores what it takes to truly heal. Alice Fearn’s major West End credits include Come From Away and Wicked.

Then, Now & Next will run from 23 June until 29 July 2023 at Southwark Playhouse, London.
