Caroline, or Change
Starring Sharon D. Clarke in the title role of this poignant and exuberant musical which tells the story of Caroline, a maid working in the basement of a wealthy family in Louisiana in 1963, and her relationship with the family’s 8-year-old son Noah. When Noah’s new step mother tries to teach Noah about the value of money, their relationship is forced to confront the wider social and racial tensions raging in 60s America.
Michael Longhurst’s production has a miraculous fluidity
Complex yet big-hearted, joyfully exuberant but sharply political, it’s owned by Michael Longhurst’s brilliant multi-generational, multi-cultural cast.
Beautifully staged and impeccably performed, this is an exceptional show.
A profound and powerful evening.
Longhurst has created a playful and stylish atmosphere... pretty sensational.Ann Treneman
