The new musical is set to play as part of Iris Theatre’s Summer Festival on the 29th and 30th August.

Today casting has been announced for the outdoor production of St Anne Comes Home written by Jack Miles.

It has been confirmed that Jordan Castle (The Light in the Piazza) will play James, Rebecca McKinnis (Dear Evan Hansen) will play Bridget, and Mathew Craig (The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4) will play Russell.

This new folk musical is directed by Martha Geelan (Associate Director for Fiddler on the Roof, West End) with Musical Supervision from Joe Beighton (SIX the Musical),

Running for four performances only, each show will adhere to social distancing measures including 2 metre spacing between benches, with all audience members being asked to wear masks, temperature checks on entry and a one way system around the venue.

London can be lonely. But on the steps of St. Anne’s Church two people strike up an unlikely friendship. James has spent years running away from his problems, while Bridget is trapped by hers. Told through original folk music, St. Anne Comes home is a story about community, fear and forgiveness, that explores how reaching out might help us find our way.

The musical is being produced by Katie Wilmore and James Leggat from Willow Walk Productions.
