Russell And Hancock Cast in Grey Gardens Musical

Grey Gardens at Southwark Playhouse
Sheila Hancock and Jenna Russell star in Grey Gardens.

Olivier Award-winning West End Stars, Jenna Russell and Sheila Hancock, are to star in the European premiere of Grey Gardens. The musical will play a six week season at the Southwark Playhouse from 2 January 2016.

Starting in 1941 at an engagement party at Grey Gardens, the Bouvier’s mansion in East Hampton, Long Island, the musical tracks the progression of the two women’s lives from American aristocrats to reclusive social outcasts living in such squalid conditions, in a home overrun by cats, that the Health Department deemed the mansion ‘unfit for human habitation’.

Based on an iconic 1975 documentary, Grey Gardens, with Book by Doug Wright, Music by Scott Frankel, Lyrics by Michael Korie, tells the spectacular real life rise and fall of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’s aunt and cousin, Edith and Edie Bouvier Beale.

Grey Gardens will reunite Danielle Tarento (Producer) and Thom Sutherland (Director), the award-winning team behind Grand Hotel, Titanic, Parade and Mack and Mabel.
