Ordinary Days
  • London Fringe

Following two sold out performances at the Hen and Chickens in October, Streetlights, People! Productions are transferring their production of Adam Gwon's award-winning musical Ordinary Days to London Theatre Workshop for a strictly limited three-week engagement (29th May to 17th June, 2017).

The transfer features the return of original cast members Alistair Frederick (Hotel For Criminals, New Wimbledon Studio Theatre; Lead Vocalist, Tokyo Disney; Bathhouse: The Musical, London and US cast) as Jason; Neil Cameron (NewsRevue, Canal Caf Theatre; That Catholic Thing, Camden People's Theatre) as Warren; and Nora Perone (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama) as Deb, while introducing Kirby Hughes (From Here to Eternity, original West End cast; A Damsel in Distress, Chichester Festival Theatre; Flashdance, original West End cast) as Claire.

Direction is provided by Jen Coles (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama), with musical direction by Rowland Brach (Footloose, UK Tour).

Ordinary Days follows the parallel lives of four New Yorkers struggling to find meaning in the madness: Claire, who can't let go of her past; Jason, determined to begin their future together; Warren, an artist who's lost his sense of purpose; and Deb, a student who's lost her thesis notes. It is a witty, poignant, and ultimately very relatable story about human connection and finding beauty in unexpected places. In his review of the original Off-Broadway production, New York Times reviewer Charles Isherwood wrote that "Ordinary Days... captures with stinging clarity that uneasy moment in youth when doubts begin to cloud hopes for a future of unlimited possibility."

Tickets are 15 / 12 concessions. Concessions are available for over-65s, students with ID, groups of 8+, or for Spotlight, Equity, MMD, or MTN members on Monday and Tuesday ("Industry Nights").

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
