New musical For You I’d Wait is to transfer to the Union Theatre.

Written by emerging musical theatre writing duo Golby & West (Sophie Golby and Thomas West), the piece is currently running at The Turbine Theatre to 21 May.

It will move to its new London venue on 31 May, playing a three-week engagement to 18 June.

The piece tells the stories of six characters who are caught up in the 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris.

On the cast are Olivia Walker-Toward, Michael Karl-Lewis, Gemma Pearce, Billie Kerr, Jerome Lincoln, Charlotte Hannan and Amy Leek.

The production is co-directed by Samantha Pears and Elsa Strachan with musical director Jenna Dyckhof, orchestrations by West and Dyckhoff and lighting designer Olivia Bailey and sound design by Paul West.

On the 13th November we pay homage to the victims. That’s the only time you think of us. For you, life goes on. But for us, it doesn’t.’

Set to a contemporary rock score, For You I’d Wait follows the lives of 6 characters before, during and after the 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris. Throughout the show we explore how the character’s lives are turned upside in one night, the process of healing, and learning to carry on. The audience are invited to explore the world of these character’s seemingly perfect relationships, and delve further into the choices they make as they encounter milestones in their lives
