Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour, starring former Dundee Rep Graduate Actor and Ensemble Member Caroline Deyga has been nominated for an Olivier Award, British theatre’s most sought-after award, in the Best New Comedy category.

Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe on 19 August 2015, and enjoyed a successful sell-out run at the Traverse Theatre, earning critical and audience acclaim, and picking up four awards before embarking on a sell-out Scottish tour and run at Newcastle’s Live Theatre in October 2015.

Alan Warner’s novel and Lee Hall’s stage play tells the story of six girls on the cusp of change. Love, lust, pregnancy and death all spiral out of control in a single day.
With a soundtrack of classical music and 70s pop rock, featuring music by Handel, Bach and ELO, Our Ladies… is a raucous and life-affirming piece of musical theatre.

Following seasons at the National Theatre of Great Britain, Edinburgh Festival Fringe and a UK Tour, the smash hit, award-winning new musical Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour is scheduled to transfer to the Duke of York's Theatre in London's West End in May this Year.
