Angela's Ashes the Musical will be making its London premiere later this year.

The production, which originally opened in Belfast in 2017, will run at Fairfield Halls in Croydon between 24 September and 5 October.

Adam Howell and Paul Hurt's musical was originally developed by Theatre Words and Uncontained Arts at the University of Derby and will be directed here by Thom Southerland with Francis O'Connor designing set and costume.

The show is based on Frank McCourt's stunning 1996 memoir of growing up in Limerick, Ireland and escaping poverty for a new life in America. The book was made into a film in 1999 by Alan Parker.
