★★★★ '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 coproduced by Thomas Hopkins, Guy Chapman and HOME.
