SWEET CHARITY

BOOK BY NEIL SIMON MUSIC BY CY COLEMAN LYRICS BY DOROTHY FIELDS
BASED ON AN ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY BY FEDERICO FELLINI, TULLIO PINELLI, ENNIO FLAIANO

 

"The minute you walked in the joint, I could see you were a man of distinction, a real Big Spender..."

New York, 1967. Charity Hope Valentine is a dance hall hostess who "runs her heart like a hotel - you've got men checking in and out all the time." At the raw end of a long line of users and losers, she meets Oscar, a mild-mannered tax accountant, and Charity Hope Valentine once again puts her faith into love.

Josie Rourke returns to the work of Cy Coleman, who wrote the music for City of Angels, with the Broadway classic Sweet Charity. With choreography from the world-renowned Wayne McGregor, Rourke reunites with Anne-Marie Duff as Charity, and Arthur Darvill makes his Donmar debut as Oscar, for her farewell production as Donmar Artistic Director.

Production supporters: Backstage Trust, Anonymous, Marcia Whitaker and the Sweet Charity Production Syndicate
