The King’s Head Theatre’s acclaimed production of Puccini’s classic La Bohème transfers to Trafalgar Studios 2 this Winter.
Adam Spreadbury-Maher and Becca Marriott’s reinterpretation of Puccini’s La Bohème is set in present-day East London, and delves into the lives and loves of Mimi, Musetta, Ralph and Mark. The production lays bare the damaging effects of co-dependent relationships against a backdrop of spiralling rents and social media.
The cast includes Becca Marriott as Mimi, Matthew Kimble and Roger Paterson sharing the role of Ralph, Matthew Palmer and Thomas Isherwood sharing the role of Mark, Honey Rouhani as Musetta, and Lizzie Holmes playing both Mimi and Musetta.
Spreadbury-Maher, Artistic Director of the King’s Head Theatre, will direct the production. In 2009, Adam produced La Bohème at the Cock Tavern and Soho Theatres, and won the Olivier Award for Best Opera. His directing highlights also include Trainspotting and the recent 35th-anniversary production of Kevin Elyot’s Coming Clean.
