Written by Tony Kushner, author of Angels in America, and starring Sharon D. Clarke in an astonishing "virtuoso performance" (The Times).

What is Caroline, Or Change about?

Set in the searing heat of Louisiana, against the explosive background of 1963 America, Caroline, Or Change is a deeply profound musical that explores a melting pot of cultural and racial issues.

Struggling to survive as the maid of a Jewish family, Caroline is afraid of not being able to support her family, but also equally afraid of all of the radical changes that are waiting just around the corner of history.

Featuring a sublime performance from Sharon D. Clarke, it’s no wonder that this Olivier award-winning new musical has been hailed as ‘a modern masterpiece’ (Evening Standard).

    Took my mother on her 77th birthday surprise and was blown away by the whole experience. Made us both cry and the performance was outstanding. Music was amazing and all actors involved in this performance looked like they were having a great time. Thank goodness got to see before the curtains finally closed on this performance. Thanks you to all for helping to make my mums birthday a success and making a proud woman proud of her own heritage. From a very appreciative daughter ThankYou...Roxanne McKenna

    I was not sure what to expect and was a little unsure when I found out it was mainly singing but have to say this was a very entertaining show. The singing and acting was great, well done cast!! I would recommend this play.

    I thought it was rubbish. Great singing and dancing but the storyline was bitty and of no substance. They could have made a lot more of the stories of the era. Rybbish
