Caroline, or Change Description

This critically acclaimed show has been nominated for six Tony awards, won the Olivier Award for Best Musical, and now comes to the West End following sell-out performances at the Chichester Festival and Hampstead Theatre.

It tells the story of Caroline, an African-American maid, who works for the Gellman family laundering clothes in the steamy basement, and her friendship with the household's eight-year-old son. An imaginative show, both amusing and emotional, it is set in 1963, an era of heightened racial tension and social upheaval. The unique musical score includes elements of Blues, Motown, Spiritual, Classical and Jewish songs.

This production stars Sharon D. Clarke as Caroline, a well-respected English actress and singer, known for her television work in Holby City and Doctor Who, plus roles in many West End musicals including Fame, the Lion King, and Chicago.

Writer Tony Kushner and composer Jeanine Tesori work together to provide alternate moments of despair, mixed with enchanting scenes of objects, including the washing machine, a bus, and a radio, coming to life in human form. It is directed by Michael Longhurst, who oversees this thought-provoking story, creating a talking point amongst audiences for many years to come.
