About the show
Sell-out smash hit Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour transfers to the West End.
A runaway success since it debuted at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2015, Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour makes its West End premiere with a strictly limited season at the Duke of York’s Theatre.
Our Ladies is the deliriously rude, sweary and anarchic tale of what happens when six Catholic schoolgirls spend the day in Edinburgh. Despite the play’s demure title, the story is a crazy, energetic and raucous display of teenage hormones and friendships. Six choir girls from sleepy Oban arrive in Edinburgh for the day. Mayhem and music chart their reign of terror through the Scottish capital’s streets. Yet the winning formula of Our Ladies relies on accompanying this chaos with something sweeter. Underneath the madness, these girls are also really good mates.
Lee Hall, the creator of Billy Elliot, adapted the story for the stage from the novel The Sopranos by Alan Warner. A live band plays a score of thirteen songs to accompany the action. The work of Electric Light Orchestra – of Livin’ Thing and Mr Blue Sky fame – is included.
Caroline Deyga, Karen Fishwick, Isis Hainsworth, Kirsty MacLaren, Frances Mayli McCann and Dawn Sievewright star in the production.
Vicky Featherstone, the Artistic Director of the Royal Court theatre, directs the show.
During its first run in Edinburgh, Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour won a Scotsman Fringe First Award. It also won a Herald Angel Award and a Stage Award. It has since continued to wow audiences and critics, including during its run at the National Theatre in 2016.
For it’s West End season, a whopping 30,000 tickets are available for £30 or less.
Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour runs at the Duke of York’s Theatre from 9 May – 2 September 2017.
Winner of the Best New Comedy Award at the 2017 Olivier Awards with MasterCard.
