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.
