5932817The Long Song
DateFriday 28th August 2020 to Saturday 26th September 2020
DescriptionThe Long Song is adapted from Andrea Levy's award-winning novel. Miss July is born into slavery in Jamaica and is brutally parted from both her mother, and her name. But what she retains is resilience, charisma and a subversive, spirited wit. This ebullient and life-affirming play finds humanity, resistance and hope in the darkest of times. The Long Song is adapted by Suhayla El-Bushra, formerly writer in residence at the National Theatre Studio, whose work includes The Suicide (NT), Arabian Nights (Lyceum, Edinburgh), and Channel 4's Hollyoaks and Ackley Bridge. Cherrelle Skeete plays July; her theatre credits include Fun Home (Young Vic), Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (West End) and Three Days in the Country (National Theatre), while screen work includes the forthcoming Hanna series 2. The cast also includes Maggie Service, whose recent TV credits include Good Omens, Life and Quiz, as Caroline Mortimer. Director Charlotte Gwinner was Associate Director at the Bush Theatre, Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse and Sheffield Theatres 2014-16, where her productions included Waiting for Godot, the Sarah Kane season and The Distance.
