From the creative team behind the immersive smash hit Sweeney Todd, comes this rather kooky and intoxicating musical about love, loss and spirits - of both the spectral and alcoholic kind.

Thursday 24 October 2019 - Saturday 4 January 2020.

Rose has a problem. She’s been betrayed by her lover, a local tree-dwelling astronomer, with her very own sister. Rose seeks vengeance and a passing bear might just offer the answer. But his services come at a price: a pot of honey, one piece of stardust, a secret baptism – and a photo of a ghost.

A kaleidoscopic journey spanning continents, centuries and the cosmos ensues. But even through the fogs of time and a haze of whiskey, Rose can’t shake the feeling that she’s done this all before…

This hauntingly beautiful song cycle is a story about stories themselves; how we tell them, how we hear them, and how they evolve, intertwine and draw us in.

“Written and composed by Dave Malloy — the rollicking talent behind the hit Off Broadway popera Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812 — this happily haunted song cycle speaks in many styles. The voguish term “mash-up” doesn’t begin to capture its breadth or its quirky sincerity” - Ben Brantley, The New York Times
