Cable Street musical returns to London at Southwark Playhouse Elephant

Hit musical Cable Street is coming back to London this autumn.

Following a sell-out run at Southwark Playhouse Borough in February 2024, the show is moving down the road to Southwark Playhouse Elephant, from September.

Cable Street boasts music and lyrics by Tim Gilvin and book and lyrics by Alex Kanefsky, and is directed by Adam Lenson.

The creative team for the show also includes choreographer Jevan-Howard Jones, set designer Yoav Segal, costume designer Lu Herbert, associate director Jamie Buller, musical supervisor Tamara Saringer, orchestrator and arranger Tim Gilvin, lighting designer Sam Waddington, dramaturg Olivia Mace, and casting director Sarah Leung.

Cable Street tells the true story of the the Battle of Cable Street in 1936, and the stories of people living in London’s East End during the 1930’s.

The musical centres on three young workers: Polish Jew, Sammy; an Irish Catholic, Mairead; and a Lancastrian Brit, Ron; with the musical raising important questions around which side the young protagonists and their families are fighting for.

The show garnered a range of positive reviews including five-stars from What’s On Stage, and the Guardian hailing the musical as a “dazzling musical portrait of a community against fascism”.

The show’s producer Dylan Schlosberg of 10 to 4 Productions said in a statement: “We had such a fantastic audience reception at our initial Southwark Borough run and now look forward to further develop and refine the show over the next few months, ready to go again at Southwark Playhouse Elephant in September.” 

Cable Street will play at Southwark Playhouse Elephant from 6 September to 10 October 2024.
