Louisiana, 1963. Revolution is in the air, though not so much for Caroline, the poorly paid maid toiling endlessly in the sweltering basement of the Gellman household.

Written by Tony Kushner (Angels in America), composed by Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home) and directed by Michael Longhurst (Amadeus), this sensational five-star musical transfers to the Playhouse Theatre following sell-out runs in Chichester and Hampstead.
