St. Anne Comes Home (12 April - 17 April)

St. Anne Comes Home

12 April - 17 April


London can be lonely. But on the steps of St. Anne's Church two people strike up an unlikely friendship. James has spent years running away from his problems, while Bridget is trapped by hers.

Following a five star, sell-out run ‘St. Anne Comes Home’ returns to the Actors' Church. The new musical is written and composed by Jack Miles and told through original folk music. 

St. Anne Comes Home is a story about community, friendship and forgiveness, that explores how reaching out might help us find our way.
