February 26 – March 4, 2018
Nadine Garner, John O’May, Jackie Rees and Eddie Muliaumaseali’i lead a stellar ensemble cast at the National Theatre as this delightful and at times, heartbreaking musical is reimagined by acclaimed Sondheim repertory company, Watch This.
A discontented, perpetually suicidal young man meets and becomes deeply attached to a free-spirited elderly woman in this adaptation of the 1971 film. The play, based on the movie of the same name, opens at Charing Cross Theatre starring Sheila Hancock and Bill Milner.
Legendary filmmaker Ingmar Bergman’s masterpiece Fanny & Alexander is translated to the stage by BAFTA award-winning writer Stephen Beresford and Old Vic Associate Director Max Webster.
Amongst the gilded romance and glamour of 1900s Sweden, siblings Fanny and Alexander’s world is turned upside down when their widowed mother remarries the iron-willed local bishop. As creative freedom and rigid orthodoxy clash, a war ensues between imagination and austerity in this magical study of childhood, family and love.
