Production images have been released for the London transfer of Hope Mill Theatre’s RAGS. The show opened at Park Theatre, London on 9 January and will run until 8 February 2020.
RAGS has a book by Joseph Stein (Fiddler on the Roof), revised book by David Thompson, lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked) and music by Charles Strouse (Annie), and tells the story of Russian immigrant Rebecca, who, with her son David, travels to America in search of a better life. Rebecca must decide what matters more to her – staying true to her roots or adopting a new cultural identity in an attempt to ‘fit in’. RAGS is directed by Bronagh Lagan and stars Carolyn Maitland as Rebecca, Dave Willetts as Avram and Sam Attwater as Bronfman.
RAGS is produced by Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment and Hope Mill Theatre, in association with Knockhardy Productions, Edward Prophet, People Entertainment Group and Park Theatre and is presented by arrangement with MTI Europe.
RAGS plays at the Park Theatre until 8 February.
