Two productions from the King’s Head Theatre in Islington are to transfer to the West End. Adam Spreadbury-Maher (King’s Head AD) and Becca Marriott’s adaptation of La bohème will run at Trafalgar Studios 2 from 6th December to 6th January. The production sets Puccini’s opera in present-day East London. Marriott plays Mimi in the production, and is joined by Roger Paterson, Matthew Kimble, Matthew Palmer, Honey Rouhani, Lizzie Holmes and Thomas Isherwood.
This 2005 Australian coming-of-age (and coming out) drama received its UK premiere at the King's Head Theatre pub in the summer of 2016, and now it belatedly moves to Trafalgar Studios 2 as part of that theatre's West End residency that also saw it present its production of La Boheme there.
