23 June 2023 to 29 July 2023 Southwark Playhouse

Starring Alice Fearn, and directed by Julie Atherton, Then, Now & Next is a heartwarming, original musical from writers Christopher J Orton and Jon Robyns in a first-time collaboration for the pair. The production opens at Southwark Playhouse, Borough on 28 June and runs until 29 July.

Struggling with a difficult past, Alex Shaw is attempting to take steps forward. We follow her journey over twenty years, through two loves – young, adventurous idealist, Stephen, and the older, reliable and charming Peter –  as she gathers the scattered chapters of her life, in the hope of re-building her story and asking if she will ever be more than just “fine”.

Through Alex’s experiences, her uplifting story questions how relationships can change over time and explores what it takes to truly heal.
