Southwark Playhouse to live-stream a new musical starring Rosalie Craig and Hadley Fraser

First Published 27 August 2020, Last Updated 28 August 2020

It was announced today that Rosalie Craig and Hadley Fraser will star in new musical Before After via live-stream at Southwark Playhouse next month.

Before After is a staged reading of a brand new musical love story by Stuart Matthew Price and Timothy Knapman, starring real-life husband and wife duo Rosalie Craig (Company) and Hadley Fraser (City of Angels).

The story follows Ami (Rosalie Craig) as she meets Ben (Hadley Fraser) by a tree on a beautiful hillside. She recognises him instantly: they were once very much in love. But Ben doesn’t remember her at all. What went so terribly wrong in the past, and is there a chance that, in the present, these two lovers might just find their happy ever after, after all?

Southwark Playhouse will be live streaming the new musical from The Little performance space for a limited run of three performances. There will be no live audience – instead patrons are invited to purchase a £10 ticket to watch the production from their homes.

Hadley wrote the book and lyrics for the musical Committee at the Donmar Warehouse and is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music.

Director Matthew Rankcom said: “There is such uncertainty for our industry at the moment, so we’re trying to explore how theatre can adapt to become more accessible and viable in the current climate. By streaming this rehearsed reading in real time, we hope to re-capture some of the magic of live theatre and allow our actors and their audience to forge a new kind of connection.”

You can tune into the production from your homes at 7pm on Friday, 25 September, 2pm on Saturday, 26 September or 7pm on Saturday, 26 September. Please note: There will be no recordings of the performance available beyond these three live streams and it will not be available on catch-up or the Southwark Stayhouse streaming platform.

Tickets are unlimited and cost £10 each in advance or £15 if booked during the week of the show (from 21 September onwards)

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.
