Caroline, Or Change at Hampstead Theatre

Following a sellout season at Chichester Festival Theatre, the production is transferred to Hampstead Theatre.  It has excellent reviews from all major press.  To book, please click here.  Pre-theatre F&B will be at Ye Olde Swiss Cottage, 98 Finchley Rd, London NW3 5EL, from 6pm.  You can see the menu here.

1963. In quiet Lake Charles, Louisiana, the destruction of a Confederate statue might just signal that change is in the air… But, whatever the progress of the civil rights movement, in the Gellman household things seem just the same – for now at least.
Eight year old Noah, heartbroken by the death of his mother and his father’s remarriage, sneaks down to the basement to spend time with the black maid he idolises, Caroline Thibodeaux: Caroline who runs everything. Whilst the basement may seem a fantastical place - even the appliances have a voice of their own - Caroline’s work there is repetitive and badly paid. But when Mrs Gellman comes up with a way for her to take a little more money home, the consequences for Caroline and Noah’s relationship are not what anybody might have expected…

An Olivier Award winning musical with a hugely original, highly eclectic and uniquely American score, Caroline, or Change creates an uplifting and profound portrait of America at a time of momentous social upheaval.
