This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

The critically-acclaimed stage adaptation of Alan Warner's cult Scottish novel The Sopranos, by Lee Hall and directed by Vicky Featherstone receives its London premiere at the Dorfman Theatre.

The production premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2015, and enjoyed a successful sell-out run at the Traverse Theatre, earning critical and audience acclaim, and picking up four awards before embarking on a sell-out Scottish tour and run at Newcastle's Live Theatre.
The full cast includes Melissa Allan, Caroline Deyga, Karen Fishwick, Kirsty MacLaren, Frances Mayli McCann and Dawn Sievewright with musicians Amy Shackcloth, Laura Bangay, Becky Brass and Emily Linden.
Music Arrangement and Supervision is by Martin Lowe, Design by Chloe Lamford, Lighting Design by Lizzie Powell and Choreography by Imogen Knight.

Alan Warner's novel and Lee Hall's musical stage play tell the story of six girls on the cusp of change. Love, lust, pregnancy and death all spiral out of control in a single day. Funny, sad, rude and beautifully sung, Our Ladies.... is a tribute to being young, lost and out of control, featuring a soundtrack of classical music and 70s pop rock, with music by Handel, Bach and ELO including the songs Mr Blue Sky, Don't Bring Me Down, Long Black Road and more. Vicky Featherstone, Artistic Director of the Royal Court Theatre, collaborates with Lee Hall, (Shakespeare in Love, Billy Elliot and The Pitmen Painters), to create a wild and tender play meets gig about singing, sex and Sambuca and suitable for those aged 16+
