The new musical will play at the theatre from the 2nd September until the 25th November.
It has been announced that Linzi Hateley (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, MAMMA MIA! ), Alasdair Harvey (Come From Away, We Will Rock You), Ed Larkin and Jonny Amies will star in the world premiere of new British musical The Little Big Things when it takes to the @SohoPlace Theatre later this year.
Based on the Sunday Times best-selling inspirational memoir by Henry Fraser, the musical will feature music and lyrics by Nick Butcher, lyrics by Tom Ling and a book by Joe White.
An extraordinary true story about an ordinary young man.When one moment changes everything, Henry finds himself split between a past he no longer recognises and a future he can’t even begin to imagine. As he learns to navigate this new world, can he find a way to take control of his life, and keep his family from falling apart?
Alasdair Harvey said “Henry Fraser is an extraordinary young man and it’s a privilege be part of the team bringing his story to the stage in a brand-new British musical in London’s newest theatre. Placing disability at the centre of a musical, without wallowing in sentiment is no mean feat, but our wonderful writers and brilliant creative team have developed a remarkable piece of theatre about an incredibly powerful true story. Henry’s fight for survival and new identity following life changing injuries is an inspiration and I’m thrilled to be playing his father Andrew.”
Linzi Hateley said“I am so excited to be working with the exceptional cast and company of The Little Big Things. As soon as I read the script, I wanted to play the role of Fran Fraser. Alongside Henry, hers is a truly captivating story, illustrating beautifully a mother’s love for her child and the strength that holds families together. I can’t wait to bring this to life on stage and to share this uplifting and deeply moving story.”
This new musical is set to be directed by Luke Sheppard, with the creative team also including: set design by Colin Richmond, choreography by Mark Smith, costume design by Fay Fullerton, video design by Luke Halls, lighting design by Howard Hudson and sound design by Paul Gatehouse.
