The Life of Us

Date: 15 Nov 2019

The Life of Us follows the long-distance romance of Charlie and Ellie.

Forced apart by circumstance, they maintain their relationship through technology, but how much connection can a person truly feel through a screen?

As we watch their lives unfold and their relationships crumble, we begin to understand what we want isn’t always what we need.

The Life of Us is a modern-day musical that looks at how we love and what it means to be connected.

Directed by Neil Gooding, this modern-day musical written by Ashleigh Taylor, composed and written by Ben Bennett, and mentored by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Godspell) opens the Hayes Theatre Company’s 2020 season.
