Death Takes A Holiday

Death Takes A Holiday

Thom Southerland directs the UK premiere of Death Takes a Holiday, music and lyrics by Maury Yeston and book by Peter Stone and Thomas Meehan.... the European premiere of the follow-up to Titanic by its Tony Award-winning writers.

In Northern Italy, shortly after World War One, Death disguises himself as a handsome young prince to try to understand why life is so precious and death so feared. But when he unexpectedly falls in love with a newly engaged young woman, this mysterious stranger discovers that love may in fact be stronger than death.

With a book by multi-Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan and Peter Stone, based on the 1928 Italian play of the same name which went on to inspire the movie, Meet Joe Black, starring Brad Pitt, and a lush, romantic score by multi -Tony Award winner Maury Yeston (Titanic, Nine), this is a soaring story of the preciousness of life and the overwhelming power of love.

Death Takes A Holiday was nominated for 11 Drama Desk Awards when it premiered Off-Broadway in 2011.

Zoë Doano and Chris Peluso head the cast which also includes Kathryn Akin, Anthony Cable, Trudi Camilleri, Ken Christiansen, Scarlett Courtney, Sophie-May Feek, James Gant, Mark Inscoe, Matthew McDonald, Gay Soper, Ashley Stillburn, Samuel Thomas, and Helen Turner.

Please note: Death Takes a Holiday composer Maury Yeston will take part in a post-show Q&A on Tuesday 24th Jan hosted by Mark Shenton. Admission is free with a valid ticket for that night's performance.
