About The Time Traveller's Wife

See Audrey Niffenegger’s internationally bestselling novel come to life in the musical debut of The Time Traveller’s Wife in the West End. Witness this timeless love story and book The Time Traveller’s Wife tickets on TodayTix.

Clare and Henry’s love story isn’t exactly like everyone else’s. They meet, fall in love, and get married, but it isn’t in that order. Henry has a paranormal genetic disorder that causes him to randomly time travel at any moment. Falling in love with his soulmate, Clare, proves a challenge when he lives in the past, present, and future at the same time. Can they stand the test of time?

The producers behind the hit shows Back To The Future: The Musical and Ghost are behind this uplifting, compelling romance, which sold out its world premiere at the Storyhouse Chester. This new stage production of The Time Traveller’s Wife mesmerises with an original score by Joss Stone and Eurythmics’s Dave Stewart.

The duo’s emotive melodies and heartfelt lyrics, along with the book by widely produced American playwright Lauren Gunderson, convey this extraordinary narrative.

More information about The Time Traveller's Wife

Although a time-travelling husband sounds like a science fiction plot, the show is a romance first and foremost. The Time Traveller’s Wife musical takes the London stage to celebrate the deep complexities any relationship has and how unconditional devotion can overpower them.

Niffenegger’s maternal grandparents inspired this premise. When her grandfather died young, her grandmother lived for another three decades without ever getting remarried. Niffenegger wanted to relay how infinite love is tested when something out of the couple’s control happens.

Since being published in 2003, The Time Traveller’s Wife novel has sold over 8 million copies worldwide. Twenty-five literary agents originally rejected the hugely successful novel, yet it’s now one of the most well-known romance stories of this century.

What to Watch For

  • It took Niffenegger almost five years to write this bestseller. In 1997, the author, who was also an illustrator at the time, thought of the phrase “time traveller’s wife.” She began questioning how a relationship involving a time traveller would work, if the wife would be forever lonely, and how they would meet. She decided this was a perfect book plot — and she was right!
  • A sequel to the novel, titled The Other Husband, has been in the works for several years. It is expected imminently; the exact date is unknown.
  • The successful release of the swoon-worthy book inspired a film of the same name. Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams star as Henry and Clare, with Robert Schwentke directing. Theo James and Rose Leslie later starred in a 2022 TV miniseries adaptation.
  • The 2009 film originally tapped Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston to play the lead roles. The real-life former couple got divorced prior to filming, so they were recast, but Pitt became an executive producer of the film.
  • Dave Stewart co-wrote the score for Ghost: The Musical, but this is the first time he and Joss Stone collaborated on a musical. The pair previously worked together to form the one-off supergroup SuperHeavy with Mick Jagger, Damian Marley, and AR Rahman.
