This stunning musical, which ran for over 10,000 West End performances, was written by Willy Russell, who was also responsible for “Shirley Valentine” and “Educating Rita”.

It’s a comedy, a tragedy, a love story and life lesson all rolled into one show. With stunning performances throughout the cast, this is one which should be marked in red in your diary.
