Casting for the new production of Stephen Schwartz and John Caird’s musical Children of Eden has been confirmed.
Running at the Union Theatre from 10 August to 10 September 2016 and directed by Christian Durham, the musical examines what it means when you have to let the one you love go.
When we bring our children into the world, all we want is to protect and cherish them. When they then begin to grow up, paradise is never quite as perfect again. The hardest part of love …is letting go.

Children of Eden will feature choreography by Lucie Pankhurst, designs by Kingsley Hall and lighting by Nic Farman.
