Do we long more for a happy ending or for a new beginning? From Here: A New British Musical
explores how reaching for the end of one chapter, or the beginning of the next, may not always
provide us with the results we expect. From struggling to find friends in a school playground, to first dates, to learning to live again after finding yourself alone, these often musically-
interwoven stories tell of characters trying to decide whether to run headfirst into trying again or whether to stay put and hold fast.
Written by Ben Barrow and Lucy Ireland, this new song cycle is a reflective piece about where we are in life and where we are going.
Talking about the musical, Lucy Ireland said: “The characters and the themes in the show all look at different
situations and how the characters deal with them personally. We go on a journey with each individual and see how they process their situation and decide to act upon it. This show is timely and relevant to our current situation, but will be timeless in the years to come and therefore suitable for all.”
From Here will play at the Chiswick Playhouse from the 1st to the 31st July.
