Direct from a critically acclaimed run at HOME Manchester, world renowned performer Will Young stars in Song From Far Away, by Olivier Award-winner Simon Stephens and Mark Eitzel, for a strictly limited London run from 28 June – 22 July.
Marking the multi-award-winning singer/songwriter and actor Will Young’s first live theatre role for a decade, Song From Far Away played at HOME Manchester earlier this year.
Song From Far Away is an unforgettable story and a personal letter to those left behind.
One crisp winter day in New York, Willem receives a phone call – it’s time to go home. Home to Amsterdam – to estranged family and forgotten relationships. As he reflects on his life, unwilling to face the future, he finds himself reaching out to the brother he lost.
“It was then that I decided to write you these letters”
Written by Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Punk Rock, Sea Wall) and Mark Eitzel, Song From Far Away is directed by Kirk Jameson and designed by Ingrid Hu with sound by Julian Starr. Composer, musical supervisor and arranger is Paul Schofield and dialect coach is Penny Dwyer. It is co-produced by Thomas Hopkins, Guy Chapman and HOME.
Song From Far Away is at Hampstead Theatre from 28 June – 22 July. Tickets are on sale from today, Wednesday 19 April, for priority bookers and on general sale from 2.00pm on Monday 24 April.
Songs from Far Away plays on the Main Stage from 28 June
