The production is set to run at the Southwark Playhouse from the 17th May until the 12th June.
Full casting has been announced for the upcoming UK premiere of Neil Bartram and Brian Hill’s musical, directed by Matthew Rankcom. Joining the previously announced Wendi Peters will be: Rebecca Lock, Phil Adéle and Jordan Frazier.
July 20, 1969. On the night of the moon landing, Chicago housewife Diana (Wendi Peters) walks out of her comfortable suburban life for no real reason. She sees the astronauts taking that great step and is struck by the realisation that some people lead exciting lives. Suddenly alone in a fast-changing world, she finds a series of unexpected encounters can turn one small step into a giant, life-changing leap.
This will be a live, in-person performance running for four weeks but there will also be two live-streamed performances on Saturday, 22 May at 3pm an 7.30pm (captions available for the matinee performance).
You Are Here features music and lyrics by Neil Bartram and a book by Brian Hill. The creative team for the production will also include: musical direction by Laura Bangay, set and costume design by Libby Todd, movement direction by Amie Hibbert, lighting design by Jai Morjaria and sound design by Charles Parry.
Currently, Southwark Playhouse are selling tickets for live, in-person socially distanced performances of You Are Here based on current government guidance. If government guidance does not allow for live performances to go ahead with social distancing, then all performances of You Are Here will be live-streamed and ticket holders will be contacted with details on how to watch the alternative production online or obtain a refund.
