Harold and Maude at the Charing Cross Theatre starring Sheila Hancock

Colin Higgins’ romantic black comedy drama is brought to stage

Thom Sutherland directs Oliver Award winning actress Sheila Hancock in Colin Higgins’ romantic black comedy drama at the Charing Cross Theatre.

Equal parts dark comedy and romantic innocence, Harold and Maude dissolves the line between darkness and light along with ones that separate people by class, gender and age.

Harold and Maude will run from 19 February 2018 until 31 March 2018 at Charing Cross Theatre.


Harold and Maude is an idiosyncratic fable told though the eyes of the most unlikely pairing:  a compulsive, self-destructive young man who attends funerals for entertainment and a devil-may-care, septuagenarian bohemian.

Through Colin Higgins’ tale, we experience a way of seeing the world that looks directly into darkness, stresses our need for humour, the freedom to create, and kindness, while concluding that cynicism and despair are dead ends.


Sheila Hancock (Grey Gardens, Annie, Cabaret, Gypsy) will play Maude. Further casting to be announced.


Thom Southerland directs. Further creative to be announced.
