A masterpiece of modern cinema, Federico Fellini’s 1957 Oscar-winning film, La Strada (The Road), is brought to life on stage at The Other Palace in a brand new adaptation by Olivier Award nominee Sally Cookson.

With music composed by Benji Bower, the production receives its London premiere at The Other Palace, and is based on one of the most influential films ever made in its first ever UK stage adaptation.

A soul-searching story filled with beauty, sadness, humour and acute observation, La Strada tells the tragic and tender tale of wide-eyed Gelsomina who is sold by her penniless mother to the brutish strongman Zampano, a travelling sideshow performer.

Their journey through the Italian countryside leads them to a ragtag touring circus where they meet Il Matto, the free-spirited tightrope walker, who tries to rekindle Gelsomina’s broken spirit.

Featuring live music and original songs, La Strada brings together a multi-skilled cast of performers and musicians, including Audrey Brisson, Stuart Goodwin and Bart Soroczynski, for a spectacular and unmissable show sure to stimulate the senses, fire the emotions and stir the soul.
