The release date for the album is Friday 5 March 2021.

The piece originally held its world premiere at Southwark Playhouse in 2019 following a workshop at Crazy Coqs in 2017.

Ellison said: “We’re so excited to finally be able to release this album! Fans of the show have been asking for it since our run back in 2019 and I’m so glad we were able to immortalise this production with a live recording. We feel so fortunate to have worked with this amazing cast and thank them for bringing our songs to life!

“We decided we would only do the November concerts if they could be one hundred percent live. The original show at Southwark Playhouse had a lot of audience interaction so for the live-streamed concerts, we used social media to interact with people, meaning I could connect with and chat to them during the interval.

“Knowing we had three sound recordings from those concerts started the conversation about releasing a cast album. and we were determined to turn the incredible performances into a live cast recording.”
