The line-up has been announced for Made in LDN, a season of new British musical theatre writing at the Cockpit in Marylebone.

Julie Atherton (Avenue Q), Sabrina Aloueche (Les Miserables) and Tori Allen-Martin (Yarico) will be joined by Vince Kidd (The Voice), Andy Coxon (Les Miserables) and Liberty Buckland (Yarico).

Other performers announced for the season – which takes place on the second Sunday of every month from March to June – include Greg Oliver (Muted), Richard Carson (Miss Saigon), Natalie Green (Wicked), Matthew Pennington (H.R.Haitch) and Jean Luke Worrell (Yarico), with more to be announced.

The cast will perform work from Aaron Lee Lambert’s From Up Here, Sam Cassidy and Matt Wills’ 27, Luke Bateman and Mary Evans’ H.R.Haitch, Scott
Morgan’s Strange People, Allen-Martin and Tim Prottey Jones’ Equally, Sarah Henley and James Fox’s The Unblinding and Tim Gilvin’s original pieces, plus excerpts from Stay Awake Jake.

Talking about the season, Allen-Martin said: "When it comes to producing your own work, the costs mount up alarmingly, yet funding keeps getting cut… We want to create a collaborative environment where artists can thrive, and we are especially interested in work that sounds modern and commercial and that is set in the UK today.

"I’m so grateful to the Arts Council for backing this and also to the Cockpit who have always championed new work and offered us the platform to put on ours."

Made in LDN runs on 13 March, 10 April, 8 May and 12 June with tickets on sale here.
