Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour Tickets

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.

Performance dates: 01 Sep 2017 - 02 Sep 2017

Running time: 1 hour 45 minutes (no interval)

Age recommendation: Recommended 16+

Special notice: With its roots in Fringe Theatre, Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour is perfect for those who like an alternative to the traditional more bombastic stage shows of the West End. Touching, hilarious and with a spectacular ELO soundtrack, Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour is one of the stand out shows to arrive on the West End this year.

Containing singing, sex and Sambuca, this show many not be suitable for young children due to strong language and adult themes.

Best Seats

SeatPlan Recommends: The Stalls in the Duke of York’s Theatre tend to give fairly good views, however there are pillars towards the ends of Rows H & Q, as well as a slight overhang from the Royal Circle, affecting Row J backwards, however this tends not to be too bad.

The Royal Circle itself is horseshoe shaped and the ends of rows can be blocked by boxes, however it is well raked and feels quite close to the stage. The Upper Circle tends to offer some of the cheapest seats in the theatre, however can also be one of the most restricted.

The show was incredible, the way that they can perform the show with a basic set and only a couple of props. It was also amazing, the fact that there were only six amazing cast members and three people in the band. Incredible.

This show was brilliantly funny and perfectly authentic. I loved the music and the girls were incredible. The vocal ranges were to die for! The only thing that might be a little different is its more of a play with songs and not a musical. Didn't stop the audience screaming at the bows!

A highly enjoyable, hilarious, poignant and very sweary bit of brilliance. It might well be one of the best shows that you'll ever see. But it's over now. Gone. Kaput! So you'll probably never know.

This was my 3rd time seeing Our Ladies ~ had to bring a friend along so she could understand why I was raving about this piece of theatre. We both loved it. Every show has its little differences, seeing it more than once you get to pick up on the smaller details and you're able to form a deeper understanding of the characters/their story when parts of the dialogue become more prominent - it's such a joy to experience storytelling in this way. Paired with the knock-out renditions of classical and ELO songs it's quite truly a breathtaking show !

I was so inspired the first time seeing this show that I was impelled to come back and see it 4 days later. The women on stage are an absolute testimony to their craft - the cast and characters are so tight that I've seen it twice with an understudy and you'd never tell. Six beautifully written characters tell a hilarious, shocking and completely unapologetic story of growing up, making right/wrong decisions and truly grabbing life by the balls. Strong acting, strong singing and a fitting no-frills-attached set truly make this a piece of theatre to remember. I look forward to seeing more plays like it!
