The role of Jonah will be shared by Theo Collis, Mikey Colville, Jobe Hart and Jack Reynolds.

The piece is directed by Morgan Young and features a book by Michael Burdette and two new British writers – music by Robert Scott and lyrics by Brendan Cull.

Performances will operate under social distancing guidelines with tickets available here.
