Departures: A Song Cycle

The Fringe musical with rave reviews comes to London

"The lyrics have the contemporary bite, and the music the tricky wit, of a new Sondheim…"

- The Sunday Times
Nine strangers stand at a nondescript railway platform on an unremarkable weekday afternoon. As their train is delayed further, they put down their crumpled Metros, pocket their bleeping smartphones – and begin to share their secrets, hopes and fears. A musical snapshot of modern Britain by Cameron Mackintosh award-winning duo, Joe Bunce and Matthew Malone, Departures sees these solitary figures on the the platform sing of their woes, then slowly come together in beautifully orchestrated harmonisation. Suitable for mature (age 16+) audiences only, due to strong language and mature themes. Runtime: 1 hour 55 minutes, including an interval.
