An epic, life-spanning tale of friendship, music, and the moments that change you forever.

The Ballad of Hattie and James

A world premier, written by Samuel Adamson and directed by Richard Twyman

At St Pancras International, a woman sits at the piano and begins to play. The music captivates commuters, tourists and, following a viral clip, millions people around the world. Behind the music is the incredible story of a lifelong duet – the ballad of Hattie and James.

Throughout their lives, Hattie and James find themselves inextricably linked with one another, for better or worse, and cannot help but replay the experiences that have shaped them.

An impassioned story from Samuel Adamson (Wife) that asks who gets to have their voice heard, and can you ever settle the score?

A Kiln Theatre and ETT co-production.
