From 8 February 2024, the Olivier Award-Winning new British musical STANDING AT THE SKY’S EDGE will be transferring to London’s West End at the Gillian Lynne Theatre.
The multi-award winning new musical STANDING AT THE SKY’S EDGE – winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Musical, UK Theatre Award for Best Musical Production and the South Bank Sky Arts Award – transfers to the West End following sold-out runs at the National Theatre and Sheffield Theatres.
Joining the cast are Elizabeth Ayodele (Small Island) as Joy, Joel Harper-Jackson (Cock) as Harry, Sharlene Hector (A Strange Loop) as Grace, Mel Lowe (Orlando) as Connie, Laura Pitt-Pulford (Seven Brides for Seven Brothers) as Poppy and Lauryn Redding (Bloody Elle) as Nikki. Returning to reprise their roles are Samuel Jordan (Masters of the Air) as Jimmy, Baker Mukasa (Tina: The Tina Turner Musical) as George, Alastair Natkiel (Line of Duty) as Marcus and Rachael Wooding (Pretty Woman: The Musical) as Rose.
Hailed as ‘the most exciting new British musical in years’ (WhatsOnStage), STANDING AT THE SKY’S EDGE was originally written as a love letter to Sheffield, charting the hopes and dreams of three generations over the course of six tumultuous decades, navigating universal themes of love, loss, and survival.
Directed by Sheffield Theatres’ Artistic Director Robert Hastie, with irresistible songs of legendary singer-songwriter Richard Hawley and a beautiful, hilarious and gut-wrenching book by Chris Bush, STANDING AT THE SKY’S EDGE reveals the history of modern Britain through the stories of the landmark housing estate – a heartfelt exploration of the power of community and what it is we all call home.
Robert Hastie, Artistic Director of Sheffield Theatres, will direct the London premiere of STANDING AT THE SKY’S EDGE.
