A revival of the award-winning 1998 musical Parade will be the first professional production at the world’s oldest working paper factory in Hertfordshire this September.
With a book by Driving Miss Daisy writer Alfred Uhry and a score by Jason Robert Brown (Songs For a New World; The Last Five Years; Bridges of Madison County), the powerful Tony Award-winning musical will play the Frogmore Paper Mill in Apsley from 7 until 16 September.
Directed by Dan Cowtan, the immersive production is aimed at revitalising the Paper Mill and relaunching the distinctive venue as a safe and unusual space for future arts-related events.
Presented by innovative theatre company Vivo D’Arte, Parade tells the tragic true story of Leo Frank a Brooklyn-born Jew living in Atlanta who was wrongfully convicted of the brutal murder of a teenage girl and lynched by an anti-Semitic mob.
Casting and further creative details are yet to be announced.
