The cast of The Land of Might-Have-Been – Norwich Theatre’s groundbreaking new musical co-produced with Buxton International Festival – met for a photoshoot last week, and we are so excited to share the photos with you all.
This bold new musical is built around the songs of Ivor Novello. It is loosely based on incidents in the life of Buxton’s pioneering feminist and pacifist Vera Brittain and the intriguing lives, loves and motivations of those closest to her.
Audrey Brisson will take on the role of Vera Brittain. Audrey has appeared in numerous musical theatre productions, including the title role Amélie the Musical, for which she was nominated Best Actress in a Musical for Olivier Awards 2020 and Best Performer in a Musical for UK Theatre Awards 2019.
Audrey will be joined by Alexander Knox, who plays Roland Leighton, Vera’s doomed fiancée; George Arvidson plays Edward Brittain, Vera’s brother, who courts death rather than face being court marshalled for his sexuality and Kit Esuroso, who will play Bobby, Vera’s friend and Edward’s secret lover.
New artwork will be coming very soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
