New musical The Superhero to premiere at The Southwark Playhouse

A new one-man musical has been announced to run at the Southwark Playhouse's Little Space, the first musical to be performed in the venue.

The Superhero is a new musical by Richy Hughes, Joseph Finlay and Michael Conley which runs from 28 June to 22 July 2017, with an official opening on 30 June 2017.

The musical features the song "Don't Look Down" which won The Stiles and Drewe Prize for Best New musical theatre song.

"'Good afternoon, your honour. I'm Colin Bradley. I'm here today to ask you, your honour, not to let Christine Davis, my ex-wife, move out of the country with Emily Bradley, my daughter.' Colin and Christine split up five years ago. Now Christine is taking their daughter to Los Angeles with her new job, and there’s nothing Colin can do about it. Or is there?"

Produced by Tim Johanson and directed by Adam Lenson this new musical asks how far would you go to see your child?

Lyricist Richy Hughes has worked on Mr Popper's Penguins and has previously contributed songs to A Song Cycle for Soho (Soho Theatre) and Mercury Musical Development’s 25th Anniversary Gala. Composer Joseph Finlay has worked with From Page to Stage and is a member of Book, Music and Lyrics advanced workshop for writers of new musical theatre. The Superhero is his first professionally produced musical.

Casting and further creative details are to be announced.
