Cast announced for the MTFestUK production of ‘Far From Heaven’

Casting has been announced for the  highly celebrated annual festival of new musical theatre, MTFestUK 2021, coming to The Turbine Theatre, London, 17-29 May before embarking on a ‘digital’ UK Tour from the 31 May – 4 July 2021.

Based on the motion picture, ‘Far From Heaven‘ (17-19 May 20201) will star Elliot Burges (David), Cory English (Stan/Maurice), Tiffany Graves (Mrs Leacock/Mona Lauder/Doreen), Aimee Hodnett (Connie/Nancy), Poppy Houghton (Janice), Melanie La Barrie (Sybil), Ako Mitchell (Raymond), Bryce Pinkham (Frank), Scarlett Strallen (Cathy) and Rebecca Thornhill (Eleanor).

Cathy Whitaker seems to be the picture-perfect wife and mother in 1957 suburban Connecticut. But roiling beneath the surface, secret longings and forbidden desires cause her world to unravel, with incendiary consequences.

With a score that is both jazz-inflected and hauntingly lyrical, Far From Heaven is a powerful story of romance, betrayal, and intolerance, as a woman grapples with her identity in a society on the verge of upheaval.
