Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch is thrilled to announce that their summer musical Love Letters will include hits ranging from the 60s to today from Essex’s very best! Artists include Alison Moyet, Billy Bragg, Billy Ocean, Blur, David Woodcock, Depeche Mode, Jessie J, Olly Murs, Sandie Shaw and The Tremeloes. The show runs 30 July – 21 August 2021.
This world premiere production of a funny and popular everyday love story promises to be an uplifting night out for everyone proudly calling Essex their home.
What happens when an unposted love letter meant to be sent between a passionate young couple dating, only gets delivered sixteen years later? Perhaps it’s time both put aside some regrets and rediscover what might have been – if it’s not too late…
Brought to you by Douglas Rintoul, the Theatre’s Artistic Director, and team members from hits such as Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Made in Dagenham and In Basildon.
The show marks the next step in the Theatre’s Essex on Stage programme, an ambitious two-year project led by Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch and made possible by the generous support of The Clothworkers’ Foundation. It champions positive notions of Essex, celebrates theatre made by working-class people and raises aspirations for emerging artists from Essex and Outer East London.
Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch has a long history of producing smash hit musicals from Blood Brothers and The Who’s rock opera Tommy, which both transferred to the West End, to more recent productions such as Melvyn Bragg and Howard Goodall’s The Hired Man, a musical adaptation of As You Like It in partnership with the National Theatre, and the regional premieres of Made in Dagenham and Once the Musical.
Tickets to Love Letters cost £13.50 – £30 plus 65p QRenew Fee, tickets for under 26s are just £8. To book, visit queens-theatre.co.uk or call the Box Office on 01708 443333.
