The debut musical by Jack Sain and Stephen Libby runs at the Union Theatre until 23 November 2019.

Tonight, Jo saw her daughter Wendy sing for the first time in the pub where she used to work - they don’t seem to have a relationship. Jo doesn’t seem to have a relationship with anyone really, and the Green Fairy wants to know where it all went wrong... Memories start to surface of Jo’s adolescence and early adulthood in 1990s London. Together, they explore Jo’s relationship with her ex-girlfriend, ex-husband and eventually her daughter.

Immersive pub musical The Green Fairy is an ode to queer parenting and overcoming anxiety, following one woman's struggle to take back control of her own life before it's too late.

Musical theatre regular Julie Atherton leads the cast as Jo, with Emma Kinney making her professional stage debut as her daughter, Wendy. Atherton and Kinney are joined in the cast by Harry F Brown, Georgina Hellier, David Perkins and Emma Whittaker.
