Song From Far Away
på Hampstead Theatre
★★★★ 'Will Young acts with melodic grace' The Guardian
★★★★ 'A beautifully composed production' Whatsonstage.com
★★★★ 'Will Young's performance was sublime' Manchester Theatres We are thrilled to announce a strictly limited London run of Will Young in Song From Far Away by Olivier Award-winning Simon Stephens and Mark Eitzel, which played to critical acclaim at HOME Manchester earlier this year. Song From Far Away is an unforgettable story and a personal letter to those left behind. One crisp winter day in New York, Willem receives a phone call – it’s time to go home. Home to Amsterdam – to estranged family and forgotten relationships. As he reflects on his life, unwilling to face the future, he finds himself reaching out to the brother he lost. “It was then that I decided to write you these letters.” Starring multi award-winning singer/songwriter and actor Will Young, this powerful show is his first live theatre role for a decade. Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of The Dog in the Night-Time) returns to Hampstead Theatre and we welcome for the first time, co-writer Mark Eitzel and director, the acclaimed Manchester-based Kirk Jameson. Song From Far Away is co–produced by Thomas Hopkins, Guy Chapman and HOME.
