Grace Mouat and Andrew Patrick-Walker to star in ‘From Here: A New British Musical’
The world premiere will run for a month at Chiswick Playhouse.
The full cast for a new song cycle From Here: A New British Musical has been announced. Six's Grace Mouat and Bat Out of Hell's Andrew Patrick-Walker will lead the company, with performances at Chiswick Playhouse from 1 - 31 July.
Mouat's West End credits include & Juliet at the Shaftesbury Theatre and Six at the Arts Theatre. Patrick-Walker recently starred in Brooklyn at the Greenwich Theatre, as well as the Meat Loaf musical Bat Out of Hell at the London Coliseum. The company is completed by Nicola Espallardo and Aidan Harkins.
Asking audiences where they see themselves in five years time, From Here explores how, when one chapter ends, it doesn't easily narrate the next. Reflecting on our current lifestyle, the musical will explore how you can appreciate the moment you're in, without worrying about the past or the future.
From Here is by Ben Barrow and Lucy Ireland, with direction by Annabelle Hollingdale. Speaking about the show, Ireland said: "The characters and the themes in the show all look at different situations and how the characters deal with them personally. We go on a journey with each individual and see how they process their situation and decide to act upon it."
