By Alice Sebold
Adapted by Bryony Lavery

Susie Salmon is just like any other young girl. She wants to be beautiful, adores her charm bracelet and has a crush on a boy from school. There’s one big difference though – Susie is dead.

Now she can only observe while her family manage their grief in their different ways. Her father, Jack is obsessed with identifying the killer. Her mother, Abigail is desperate to create a different life for herself. And her sister, Lindsey is discovering the opposite sex with experiences that Susie will never know. Susie is desperate to help them and there might be a way of reaching them…

With a cast of 13 versatile and talented actors, visually stunning staging and a spellbinding soundtrack, this wonderfully creative production is an exciting, emotional and ultimately uplifting theatrical tour de force.

Alice Sebold’s novel The Lovely Bones is a unique coming-of-age tale that captured the hearts of readers throughout the world. This acclaimed adaptation is an unforgettable play about life after loss.
