Aria Entertainment and Guy James in association with Penny Rock Theatre Productions & Jermyn Street Theatre present the world premiere of the new musical The Return of the Soldier, directed by Charlottoe Westenra, which will begin previews at Jermyn Street Theatre near Piccadilly Circus in central London, on 02 Sep 2014, officially open on 04 Sep and continue its limited engagement through to 20 Sep 2014.
The musical is based on Rebecca West's 1918 novel with music by Charles Miller, and book & lyrics by Tim Sanders.
Synopsis: 'An intensely bitter-sweet tale dissects the very different love of three women for Christopher. When he returns from the war with shell-shock, there are profound consequences for each of them. With a cast of five, this new music drama becomes an eloquent treatise on the nature of love, truth, memory and loss. In the end, only an extraordinary sacrifice will restore a fragile status quo.'
The Return of the Soldier is suitable for ages 11+.
