Following a critically-acclaimed opening at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, subsequent UK tour and sell-out run last summer at the National Theatre, which saw the production garner two Olivier Award nominations, winning Best New Comedy, Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour opens in the West End in May 2017 at the Duke of York’s Theatre.
From the creator of Billy Elliot (Lee Hall) comes the uplifting and moving story of six Catholic school girls from Oban, let loose in Edinburgh for the day. Funny, raucous and heart-breaking, Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour is adapted from Alan Warner’s brilliant novel The Sopranos, about six young friends on the cusp of change.
Featuring, amongst others, the songs of ELO, Our Ladies is a glorious anthem to friendship, youth and growing up disgracefully. Prepare thyself for 24 hours of holy chaos. Contains singing, hilarity, sambuca and strong language.
Director Vicky Featherstone’s smash-hit production of Lee Hall’s musical adaptation of the novel reunites the original cast members of the show.
Age Guidance: 16+. Contains strong language and adult themes.
