Adapted from Alan Warner’s The Sopranos by Lee Hall, it is described as an "uplifting and moving story of six Catholic school girls from Oban, let loose in Edinburgh for the day. Funny, raucous and heart-breaking, it focuses on six young friends on the cusp of change and is a glorious anthem to friendship, youth and growing up disgracefully."
Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour is presented in the West End by Sonia Friedman Productions, Scott M. Delman, Gail Berman Theatricals and Tulchin Bartner Productions in association with William Court Cohen, Ashley M. DeSimone & Jeremiah J. Harris.
