Wilton’s Music Hall has announced its exciting new season programme, which sees the world’s oldest surviving grand music hall welcome a diverse range of work, shining a spotlight on live music and bespoke theatre productions. In addition to the previously announced the premiere of Zoe Lewis’ play Britten in Brooklyn, starring Sadie Frost in September, the schedule includes a major London revival of the 1996 Off-Broadway musical FLOYD COLLINS. The new production, directed by Jonathan Butterell, will run at Wilton’s Music Hall 21 September to 15 October 2016.

In 1925 in Kentucky, USA, a remarkable true story unfolds that is to become the powerful musical FLOYD COLLINS, which tells the extraordinary tale of the cave explorer of the same name, who dreams of finding fame and fortune deep underground. When disaster strikes and he becomes trapped, it is a race against time for his family and friends as they fight to set him free and keep his morale high through a difficult and dangerous time.

In a touching story of family, friendship and survival, Adam Guettel and Tina Landau’s award-winning musical is brought to life by a hauntingly beautiful score and directed by Jonathan Butterell, all in the atmospheric surroundings of Wilton’s.
