Olivier Award-winning West End star Sheila Hancock and Bill Milner (Dunkirk, X-Men: First Class, Son of Rambow) are set to star in the UK premiere of Harold & Maude at the Charing Cross Theatre from the 19th February, directed by Thom Southerland.
Harold and Maude is an idiosyncratic fable told though the eyes of the most unlikely pairing:  a compulsive, self-destructive young man who attends funerals for entertainment and a devil-may-care, septuagenarian bohemian. 
Dame Marjorie “Maude” Chardin (Sheila Hancock), is a free spirit who wears her hair in braids, believes in living each day to its fullest, and “trying something new every day”. Harold Parker Chasen (Bill Milner) is an 18-year-old man who is obsessed with death, attends funerals of strangers for entertainment and stages elaborate fake suicides. Through meeting Maude at a funeral, he discovers joy in living for the first time. Part dark comedy and romantic innocence, Harold and Maude dissolves the line between darkness and light along with ones that separate people by class, gender and age.
