The cast for Jonathan Church’s production is led by Beverley Knight as Faye Treadwell. She is joined by Adam J Bernard, Tarinn Callender, Matt Henry and Tosh Wanogho-Maud who play The Drifters in the show.

From the highs of hit records and sell out tours to the lows of legal battles and personal tragedy, The Drifters Girl charts the trailblazing efforts of the world’s first African American, female music manager and how she refused to ever give up on the group she loved. Thirty years, and hundreds of hit songs later, there is no doubt that Faye Treadwell was and always will be, The Drifters Girl.
