Harold and Maude
Equal parts dark comedy and romantic innocence, Harold and Maude is an idiosyncratic romantic fable told though the eyes of the most unlikely pairing: a compulsive, self-destructive young man and a devil-may-care, septuagenarian bohemian.
Dame Marjorie “Maude” Chardin (Olivier Award-winner Sheila Hancock), is a free spirit who wears her hair in braids, believes in living each day to its fullest, and “trying something new every day”. Harold Parker Chasen (Bill Milner) is an 18-year-old man who is obsessed with death, attends funerals of strangers for entertainment and stages elaborate fake suicides. Through meeting Maude at a funeral, he discovers joy in living for the first time.
Harold and Maude dissolves the line between darkness and light along with ones that separate people by class, gender and age.
The cast also includes: Anthony Cable (The Woman in White, Charing Cross Theatre), Rebecca Caine (Flowers For Mrs Harris, Crucible Sheffield), Christopher Dickins (Ragtime, Charing Cross Theatre), Joanna Hickman (Ragtime, Charing Cross Theatre), Samuel Townsend (84 Charing Cross Road, Cambridge Arts Theatre), Anne White (Love in the Past Participle, The Other Palace) and Johnson Willis (Dido Queen of Carthage, RSC).
Charing Cross Theatre’s artistic director Thom Southerland directs the production, with set design by Francis O’Connor, costumes by Jonathan Lipman, lighting by Matt Clutterham, sound design from Andrew Johnson and compositions by Michael Bruce.
