Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour

Duke of York's Theatre

production closed


The latest show from Lee Hall heads to the West End’s Duke of York’s Theatre in 2017, giving London theatregoers the opportunity to see something that has wowed audiences and critics around the country. Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour is adapted from a 1998 novel by Alan Warner and heads to the West End under the direction of Vicky Featherstone, who also launched the show to great success at the National Theatre.

So this is a must-see production that has every chance of being the most talked-about new show in town when it opens its doors in May 2017.

Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour premiered at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh in 2015, which is a fitting location as the Scottish capital also lends itself as the show’s setting. It is where our group of characters – six Catholic girls from the small Scottish town of Oban – are let loose. Swapping a small town for the big city fills them with opportunity and over the course of 24 hours we will see how they go through all of life’s emotions as a coming-of-age story about friendship unfolds.

Along the way we also hear renditions of some great songs as part of the musical score, with the music of Electric Light Orchestra, Bob Marley and Bach amongst the soundtrack.

As the latest show from Lee Hall this is bound to have audiences flocking to the Duke of York’s Theatre as audiences have come to trust his entertaining works. He is responsible for both the film and its subsequent stage adaptation of Billy Elliot and also penned the plays Shakespeare In Love and The Pitmen Painters. So theatregoers know that they are in safe hand when it comes to Hall’s shows.

Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour runs at the Duke of York’s Theatre.
