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....
Pig Farm by Greg Kotis at the St James Theatre
Dead Posh Productions will present the UK premiere of Pig Farm by Greg Kotis at the St James Theatre, a fringe venue in Victoria, south London, from 21 October to 21 November 2015, with an official opening on 28 October.
Tony Award-winning writer Greg Kotis wrote the book for the musical 'Urinetown' which also had its UK premiere at the St James Theatre. He said of the announcement:
"I am thrilled beyond measure to be returning to London and the St. James Theatre with Pig Farm. Every American playwright dreams of having his or her work brought to life on a London stage, and I feel very lucky indeed that this dream is coming true once again."
"Life on the farm is hard. Under a pot-bellied sky, Tom and Tina, with just the help of hired hand Tim, are struggling for survival and it's taking its toll. Troubles simmer dangerously as they search for solace, then gun-toting Teddy arrives and things go from bad to worse."
The production will be directed by Katharine Farmer, with further creative team and cast announced at a later date.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
