The production is directed by Thom Southerland, with set design by Francis O’Connor, costume design by Jonathan Lipman, lighting by Matt Clutterham, sound by Andrew Johnson and composed by Michael Bruce,

Harold and Maude by Colin Higgins reunites Sheila with director Thom Southerland after their acclaimed sold-out success with the UK premiere of the musical Grey Gardens in 2016.
