PARADE

History tells us his fate…  now relive his journey ... 

Some stories are so great, so epic in their impact and poignancy that they stretch through the annals of time. The case of Leo Frank is one such story.  Was he a monster, capable of killing a child and deserving of his fate, or an innocent man who became the scapegoat for a society overflowing with resentment towards rich, Jewish factory owners, a public outcry over the exploitation of child workers and a ruthless, unmerciful media culture?

Following its hugely successful performance in Dublin last October, FIND YOUR WAY HOME will make its American début at The Palace Theatre, Albany on 17th July, the John Hancock Theatre, Boston on 20th July and Symphony Space, Broadway NYC on 25th July, 2017.

Leading the Irish cast is Alex Sharpe (Celtic Woman/Les Misérables), under the direction of Christine Scarry and musical direction by David Hayes.

Parade tells the heart-wrenching, true story of Leo Frank: a Brooklyn-raised Jewish man living in Atlanta who was wrongfully convicted of the rape and murder of his thirteen-year-old employee, Mary Phagan, in 1913.  A momentous case which split America in two, it has a characteristically rich, intricate, and wide-ranging score penned by Jason Robert Brown, and a bold willingness to dive into the complexities of early 20th century social relationships in the South.  Parade is a sophisticated, dark tale with endless depths for a highly skilled company of actors and musicians to plumb.

THE LONESOME WEST

In a small town that's fast becoming the murder capital of the world, two brothers battle it out over a dead father, an inheritance and a packet of crisps.

Sadistic, dangerous, inflammatory and hilarious.  Welcome to The Lonesome West.

The Lonesome West is the third instalment in Martin McDonagh's award-winning Leenane Trilogy.  It tells the story of Coleman and Valene Connor, whose dysfunctional co-habitation plays out an hilariously dark vision of the human condition.

THE FULL MONTY

In this Americanised musical stage version adapted from the 1997 British film of the same name, six unemployed Buffalo steelworkers, low on both cash and prospects, decide to present a strip act at a local club after seeing their wives’ enthusiasm for a touring company of Chippendales. One of them, Jerry, declares that their show will be better than the Chippendales dancers because they’ll go “the full monty”—strip all the way.
