From Here: A New British Musical to have its World Premiere at Chiswick Playhouse

Grace Mouat and Andrew Patrick-Walker will bring From Here: A New British Musical to life at Chiswick Playhouse from 1-31 July 2021.

They’ll be joined by Nicola Espallardo and Aidan Harkins, directed by Annabelle Hollingdale in this world premiere which considers where we might just find ourselves in five years.

Do we long more for a happy ending or for a new beginning? From Here: A New British Musical explores how reaching for the end of one chapter, or the beginning of the next, may not always provide us with the results we expect. From struggling to find friends in a school playground, to first dates, to learning to live again after finding yourself alone, these often musically- interwoven stories tell of characters trying to decide whether to run headfirst into trying again or whether to stay put and hold fast.

From new writers Ben Barrow and Lucy Ireland, this contemporary song-cycle is a poetically conversational guide. From Here offers the perfect opportunity for audiences to reflect on where they are and where they’re going. And as we navigate out of a pandemic, it offers a chance to appreciate the middle of a moment too.
