This wonderful piece has come to the West End for a limited run until October 2016 with Michael Crawford playing Colston. I’m so please to be working with Roger Haines again in this show following the original production in 2011 as Associate Director. it’s great to see it come into London.

Based on L. P. Hartley’s 1953 novel, The Go-Between follows the story of an elderly man, Leo Colston, who unintentionally unlocks memories of his past, which he had long since left behind. Snapshots of a particularly hot summer in 1900 appear, along with his days spent in Norfolk. When a young Leo spends the holidays with the family of his friend Marcus, he is plunged into an adult world of deceit and illicit passion. Leo becomes trapped in a doomed love affair between upper-class Marian and farmer Ted, acting as the go-between. Soon, he realises that this has shaped his life forever’.

Previously running at the West Yorkshire Playhouse, the Royal & Derngate and Derby Live, The Go-Between has received Best Musical Production at the Theatre Awards UK.
