An MTC NEXT STAGE Original
Book by Carolyn Burns
Music by Tim Finn
Lyrics by Tim Finn & Simon Phillips
Based on the story by Kazuo Ishiguro
Directed by Simon Phillips
The Helpmann Award-winning team behind the smash hit Ladies in Black returns with a sweetly stirring new boutique musical, Come Rain or Come Shine. An adaptation of Nobel laureate Kazuo Ishiguro’s wildly comic short story about music, memory and lifelong friendship, this world premiere will feature the incredible talents of Gillian Cosgriff (The Beast), Angus Grant (Cock) and Chris Ryan (Shakespeare in Love).
Ray, Emily and Charlie have been the best of friends since university. As students, Ray and Emily bonded over their mutual adoration of the Great American Songbook, while Emily fell in love with Ray’s roommate, Charlie – despite his terrible taste in music. Nearly thirty years later, Emily and Charlie are happily married and there’s always a bed for Ray at their place when he visits from overseas. But on Ray's latest sojourn, Charlie has a favour to ask that could change everything.
Directed by Simon Phillips, with book by Carolyn Burns and original songs by Tim Finn, Come Rain or Come Shine is an MTC NEXT STAGE commission.
A funny, bittersweet ode to the bonds that tie us together, even when life seems more cloudy than sunny, it’s sure to be a cherished adaptation of a remarkable literary gem.
