It is remarkable how the mundane, simple and modest elements of hard graft, so often taken for granted, become the catalyst for the way you think and live your life, despite your best efforts to be defined by your dreams. Working, a musical directed by Luke Sheppard at the Southwark Playhouse, capitalises on that universal revelation with an incredible cast performing heartfelt, heartwarming and heart-wrenching stories of real people.
The Color Purple’s book, movie and musical have all told the extraordinary story of a Celie, a brutally oppressed woman who against all odds, overcomes racism, abuse and misogyny to find her unique place in 20th century America. Not seen in London since the Menier’s sensational production in 2013, the musical returned to the capital this week for a one night only concert-staged fundraiser.
If like me you are interested in all theatre whether it be in the U.K. or on Broadway then you can’t have failed to hear about the phenomenon of The Color Purple.

An all-star West End cast is announced today for a one night only concert version of The Color Purple at London’s Cadogan Hall on Sunday 21 May 2017 at 6.00pm. The Color Purple is being staged to raised funds for The British Theatre Academy.
