by Lee Hall
Listen, girls, if we stick together there’s no ways we’ll even get to the second round...
Young, lost and out of control, a bunch of Catholic schoolgirls go wild for a day in the big city, the singing competition a mere obstacle in the way of sex, sambuca and a night back home with the submarine crew in Mantrap.
Funny, sad and raucously rude, Lee Hall’s musical play Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour, adapted from Alan Warner’s novel The Sopranos, premiered at the Traverse Theatre in August 2015, in a production by the National Theatre of Scotland and Live Theatre and transferred to the National Theatre, London, in August 2016. The play won the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy 2017 and transferred to the Duke of York’s, London, in May 2017 in a co-production with Sonia Friedman Productions.
