After a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year, Streetlights, People! Productions’ revival of Ordinary Days returns to London from the 21st November.
Ordinary Days is an award-winning musical following the parallel lives of four New Yorkers struggling to find meaning in the madness: Claire, who can’t let go of her past; Jason, determined to begin their future together; Warren, an artist who’s lost his sense of purpose; and Deb, a student who’s lost her thesis notes. A witty, poignant, and ultimately very relatable story about human connection and finding beauty in unexpected places.
Directed by Jen Coles, Ordinary Days began with a sold-out engagement at the Hen and Chickens Theatre last October before transferring to London Theatre Workshop.
The musical features music and lyrics by Adam Gwon and is produced by Streetlights, People! Productions.
Streetlights, People! Productions was founded by Nora Perone (who plays Deb) and Jen Coles while they were both students at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama– for them, producing their own projects meant never having to spend a day at home waiting for the phone to ring.
Talking about the musical Nora Perone said: “I was drawn to Ordinary Days because, as well as being a triumph of musical comedy, it’s also a brilliant examination of the struggles faced today by young adults– and particularly by young artists. Ordinary Days is a breath of fresh air in a city that can sometimes feel polluted with cynicism and self-doubt.”
Ordinary Days will play at the Drayton Arms from the 21st November until the 9th December. For more information visit: http://www.thedraytonarmstheatre.co.uk/component/jevents/eventdetail/4776/-/ordinary-days?Itemid=402
