LIFTThe uncomfortable silence, unnatural proximity to strangers and fear of eye contact are just a few factors that can make a lift journey unbearably awkward. Yet, when eight people get into one of the lifts at Covent Garden tube, and we are privy to everything they are thinking, including the revelations of their deep secrets, it doesn't take long before we realise that they are all connected. This world premiere of new musical LIFT, from the book by Ian Watson and with original music from Craig Adams, will delve into love, life and loss all within a seemingly normal London lift.

 

About Soho Theatre

The Soho Theatre Company was formed in 1969 by Verity Bargate and Fred Proud, but it didn't have a permanent home until 2000, when its current Dean Street location opened. This modern space was the first theatre to be built with National Lottery money. More about Soho Theatre
