Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour

Billy Elliot the Musical writer Lee Hall will have his latest adaptation Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour open at the Duke of Yorks theatre, London in May 2017 following a critically-acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

The show is based on the novel The Sopranos by Alan Warner tells the story of six Catholic school friends spending a day in Edinburgh and is set largely to the music of the Electric Light Orchestra with Judi Tzuke, Handel, Bach & Vaughan Williams thrown in for good measure. Even the theme tune to the the Channel 4 soap Brookside is featured in the score.

Five cast members from the National Theatre production –  Caroline Deyga (Chell), Karen Fishwick (Kay), Kirsty MacLaren (Manda), Frances Mayli McCann (Kylah) and Dawn Sievewright (Fionnula) – reprise their roles for the West End transfer with new face Isis Hainsworth joining as Orla. A live band is also on stage as “24 hours of holy chaos” ensues.

Heralded as funny, raucous and heart-breaking , Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour is an anthem to friendship, youth and growing up disgracefully.
