'Em' is performed at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama from 14-17 June 2017

A MUSICAL BY PLAYWRIGHT & COMPOSER BENJAMIN TILL

Overview

Em, set in Liverpool in 1965, tells the story of a young, unmarried woman trying desperately to keep a baby that the authorities want to take away from her. Set against the backdrop of a city which is literally bursting into colour, Em is a harrowing, gritty, but ultimately uplifting tale of friendship, class and love.

Written by BAFTA nominated composer Benjamin Till, whose previous works include the UK Theatre Award-winning Brass, Our Gay Wedding: The Musical and Beyond The Fence.
