Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour Tickets

Lee Hall’s spectacular musical Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour transferred to Duke of York’s Theatre following acclaimed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe and the National Theatre last year, with performances running from 9th May 2017 to 2nd September 2017.

Lee Hall’s spectacular musical Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour has arrived at the Duke of York’s Theatre after having had hugely popular runs at the Galway International Arts Festival, Edinburgh Fringe, the National Theatre and on tour throughout the UK in 2016. This transfer opened on 9th May 2017 and is set to run until 2nd September 2017.

Based on Alan Warner’s novel The Sopranos, this musical adaptation is hilarious, heartbreaking and riotous production telling the story of six girls on the brink of womanhood. Young, confused and completely unstoppable, the girls stumble over lust, love, pregnancy and death all packed into the course of a single life changing day.

First premiering at the Fringe in August 2015, the musical won a Scotsman Fringe First Award, a Herald Angel Award and a Stage Award for Acting Excellence during its opening run, before receiving much deserved London and national transfers.

Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour features the classic music of ELO including much loved songs such as ‘Mr Blue Sky’, ‘Sweet Talkin’ Woman’ and ‘Shine a Little Love’, arranged for and performed by a live three piece on stage band.

The production is directed by Vicky Featherstone, artistic director of London’s Royal Court Theatre and founding artistic director of National Theatre of Scotland, known for her previous acclaimed productions such as The Mistress Contract and The Ritual Slaughter of Gorge Mastromas and features musical arrangement by Tony Award-winning Martin Lowe, who previously worked on the hugely popular Once.

Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour also features design by Chloe Lamford, choreography by Imogen Knight, lighting by Lizzie Powell and sound by Mike Walker.

The cast from the National Theatre production reprise their original roles, with Melissa Allan as Orla, Caroline Deyga as Chell, Karen Fishwick as Kay, Kirsty MacLaren as Manda, Frances Mayli McCann as Kylah and Dawn Sievewright as Fionnula.

Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour gives those who missed out on the hugely popular National Theatre run last year, another opportunity to see this spectacular and visceral coming of age story. With performances having began on the 9th May 2017 and having had an official opening on 15th May 2017, Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour is one of the most exciting West End transfers this year.
