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.

A brand new musical sharing written and composed by Jack Miles and told through original folk music. St. Anne Comes Home is a story about community, fear and forgiveness, that explores how reaching out might help us find our way.

St Anne Comes Home forms part of Iris Theatre's Summer festival. As theatre begins to emerge after the difficulties of COVID-19, Iris Theatre reaffirms its commitment to support artists across disciplines to create and showcase work in the heart of London's theatreland. Iris returns with a festival of new work in the beautiful grounds of St Paul's Church, Covent Garden.
