Louisiana, 1963. Revolution is in the air, though not so much for Caroline, the poorly paid maid toiling endlessly in the sweltering basement of the Gellman household. It’s a fantastical, magical place amidst the piles of laundry and singing washing machines, especially for eight-year-old Noah Gellman who sneaks downstairs to see her whenever he can. Yet a simple gesture to leave more money in Caroline’s pocket is about to test who and how far the winds of change can ever really reach…
The creative team for the production includes designs by Fly Davis, choreography by Ann Yee, musical direction by Nigel Lilley, lighting by Jack Knowles and sound by Paul Arditti.
Caroline, or Change will play at the Playhouse Theatre from the 20th November until the 9th February 2019. To book tickets click here or visit: Ticketmaster.co.uk, ATG Tickets, Encore Tickets, See Tickets, Love Theatre.com, Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk.
