MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG

Book GEORGE FURTH
Music & Lyrics STEPHEN SONDHEIM

7 – 24 MARCH 2018
THE DEPOT THEATRE, MARRICKVILLE

After debuting with the critically acclaimed sell-out production of Sunday in the Park with George, Little Triangle will present Merrily We Roll Along with emerging Australian performers this coming March for a limited 3-week season as part of The Depot Theatre’s 2018 line-up.

Franklin Shepard, a successful songwriter and movie producer in his late thirties, reviews his life, both professional and personal, especially his relationships with his best friends, Mary Flynn and Charley Kringas (his song-writing collaborator), and his two wives, Beth and Gussie. The action moves backward in time from 1976 to 1957, from the disappointments of adulthood, to the hopeful idealism of youth.

Merrily We Roll Along has been ‘long regarded as one of the beautiful and damned misfits of the Sondheim canon’ and yet remains ‘emotionally resonant’, bringing out the ‘sharpness in the showbiz satire’ following this ‘friendship under siege’ (Ben Brantley, The New York Times).
