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....
Stand at Battersea Arts Centre from 20 April
Chris Goode & Company and Oxford Playhouse present Stand at south London's Battersea Arts Centre from 20 April to 9 May 2015, as part of a UK tour.
The production is conceived by Chris Goode, who also directs, with set design by Naomi Dawson and lighting by Tim Boyd. Cast includes Spencer Brown, Michael Fenton Stevens, Kelda Holmes, Gwyneth Strong, Cathy Tyson and Lawrence Werber.
Synopsis:"Drawn from real life stories of courage and conscience from ordinary people, Stand examines what makes people elect to take a stand for what they believe in. Six actors portray six real life activists – or at least, six people who have chosen to act. The ideas to which they are devoted could hardly be bigger or more important."
Speaking about the show, Chris Goode said: "In the run-up to May 7th, the question of what we and others stand for - and what we won't stand for - becomes ever more pertinent and more pressurized. I hope Stand can be a radically different light to shine on that question."
Following a recent fire at the Battersea Arts Centre, the venue has stated that "extensive safety checks" have now been carried and that the the front of the building has been re-opened. Therefore, this production is able to go ahead as planned.
