Based on Jamila Gavin’s Whitbread Award-winning novel, The New York Times calls Coram Boy a “rollicking melodrama” that is “a tale rich in sentimental unions and sinister deeds, heart-tugging partings and gob-smacking coincidences.” This dramatic piece takes place over the course of several years in 18th century England and follows the lives of people from very different backgrounds; some with a longing for a career in music, and a father and son who are murderous scam artists. Dark twists and turns of this English classic, accompanied by the music of Adrian Sutton, are in store for this story of the Coram Hospital for Deserted Children.
