Created by Adam Meggido and Dylan Emery, the cast includes Ruth Bratt, Justin Brett, Dylan Emery, Pippa Evans, Susan Harrison, Sean McCann, Adam Meggido, Philip Pellew, Andrew Pugsley, Oliver Senton, Lucy Trodd, and Sarah-Louise Young, with seven cast members appearing per performance alongside a live on-stage band.

The current production closes on 28 November. Tickets for the Lyric run go on sale on Monday 30 November. You can read our review of the production here.
