The musical is an adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ 'The Case of the Crushed Petunias' with music by French composer Vincent Guibert in a collaboration with eight different lyricists: Amy Rosenthal, Robert Holman, Honeysuckle Weeks, Adam Meggido, Desmond O’Connor, Adam Byron, Matt Peover and Charlie Dupré.
The Liberation of Colette Simple features Nathalie Carrington in the title role and set and costume design by James Cotterill.
Synopsis: 'Colette Simple lives a contented life in her gossipy little town, taking care of her humble store and faithful (if somewhat snide) canary. But when she wakes one day to find her precious wall of petunias has been deliberately trampled, the young perpetrator leads her towards an epiphany that frees her from her dreary life in a mix of musical theatre, absurd comedy and live music.'
