SAVING GRACE, the beloved film that inspired the smash-hit series Doc Martin is brought to the stage this autumn as a heart-warming and hilarious new musical. With music by BRIT Award-winner KT Tunstall and book by acclaimed playwright April de Angelis, this world premiere is directed by Tony Award nominee Laurence Connor.
Sometimes in life, you just need to grow.
After the suspicious death of her husband, Grace is alone and on the verge of bankruptcy. Finding an unlikely friend in her gardener Matthew, the budding entrepreneurs create a new joint venture to solve their financial woes. Dipping their toes into the dark side of horticulture, Grace and Matthew light up the sleepy seaside town of Port Isaac, as the pair find new highs in life’s lows.
This very limited, exclusive run of performances of Saving Grace is a chance to experience the development of a new West End musical. The creative team behind Saving Grace are looking forward to welcoming audiences to a sneak preview of a show normally only seen by industry insiders at this stage.
Presented with a full cast and band, the shows at Riverside Studio will be intimate and connect every moment on stage with the audience members.
Over the course of the 12 shows the Creative Team will learn from the audiences reaction to the work, and may change the show for future performances. This mean no two performance may be the same! Any show you see will be unique to the evening you attend, making it be a perfect snapshot of the the development of the show at that moment.
SAVING GRACE opens at Riverside Studios for 12 performances only from 22 November 2022.
