★★★★★ ‘If the Fringe is planning to offer a better production than this in 2011, it’s going to have to work mighty hard between now and Christmas… a triumph for all concerned’ Evening Standard

★★★★ ‘an epic piece… The Donmar Warehouse staged a persuasive production of the show… but this production in the Southwark Playhouse strikes me as even more powerful and moving… a hugely ambitious undertaking for such a small venue’ The Telegraph

★★★★ ‘it’s a cracker… haunting opening number… fluid staging… packs a real punch… the gloomy vaults add to the atmosphere of John Risebero’s clever design… terrific performances…’ The Guardian

★★★★ ‘Thom Southerland’s compelling revival’ The Independent

★★★★ ‘a fine revival of a gripping and ambitious work’ Metro

‘a watershed musical that has to be seen this summer’ The Stage

Strictly no latecomers

In Atlanta, Georgia in 1913 Leo Frank, a Jewish factory manager from Brooklyn, is accused of the rape and murder of a 13 year old employee.

Parade is based on the true story of how the trial, sensationalised by the media, aroused antisemitic tensions in the deep South and how the events surrounding it led the revival of the defunct KKK and the birth of the Jewish Civil Rights organization.

On its Broadway premiere in 1998, Parade was nominated for nine Tony Awards, winning Best Book and Best Score. It also won Best New Musical at the Drama Desk and The New York Drama Critic’s Circle Awards.

The Vault is a large untreated performance space in the Victorian arches beneath London Bridge Train Station and as such can get a bit chilly. Although we do everything we can to ensure audience comfort we’d advise to bring along jumper just in case!
