It’s the delicious new musical that became the crème de la crème of Broadway, but Sara Bareilles has confirmed Waitress is looking to transfer to the West End....
Firebird by Phil Davies transfers to the Trafalgar 2
The play previously ran at the Hampstead Theatre Downstairs and movingly illustrates how easily young people are exploited and used.
Directed by Edward Hall, it features design by Polly Sullivan, lighting design by Tom Nickson and sound design by John Leonard.
"Tia’s mouthy attitude and confident swagger hide a vulnerable teenager whose tough start in life dangerously draws her to AJ. Older, good-looking and charismatic, AJ shows her a kindness she’s never known before. But this kindness comes at a price."
Matthew Reed, Chief Executive of The Children’s Society, said:
"When we first saw Firebird at Hampstead Downstairs, we were bowled over. Its power to highlight the brutal reality that child victims of this crime face and that our services across the country deal with every day is remarkable. It is fantastic that the play is opening in the Trafalgar Studios, which will help raise awareness about this terrible truth".
This production is part of ‘Hampstead Downstairs at the Trafalgar Studios’ following Four Minutes Twelve Seconds by James Fritz and The Wasp by Morgan Lloyd Malcolm.
