Broken Wings

Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment with Bonnie Comley and Stewart F Lane in association with Edward Prophet and People Entertainment Group presents Broken Wings.


Written by Nadim Naaman and Dana Al Fardan
Adapted from Khalil Gibran’s Broken Wings


From the producer of The Last Five YearsCruiseHairRags, and The Addams Family comes the 'brave new musical' (Theatre Weekly), Broken Wings. Based on the best-selling novelist Khalil Gibran's (The Prophet) poetic book, and with an 'unabashedly romantic' (The Guardian) original score from Middle Eastern duo Nadim Naaman and Dana Al Fardan, this moving production will light up the West End in 2022.


New York City, 1923. Through exquisite poetry and enchanting music, an ageing Gibran narrates our tale, transporting us back two decades and across continents, to turn-of-the-century Beirut. Gibran meets Selma; their connection is instant and their love affair, fated. However, their journey to happiness is soon thrown off course, as the pair face obstacles that shake the delicate foundation of their partnership. Will their love win out or will their dream of a life together be torn apart?


Performed in-the-round, Broken Wings takes us on an unmissable musical voyage that is 'pleasingly evocative of an old Beirut' (The Stage). Over a century later, and the themes and debates raised in Gibran's story, remain increasingly relevant today; exploring issues of gender equality, immigration, the freedom to love who we love, and what 'home' really means to us.


Get swept away in the magic of this epic, poignant, and romantic musical which 'lingers long in the heart and mind' (WhatsOnStage). Book your tickets now!

Marie Curie
Marie Skłodowska-Curie. Physicist. Pioneer. Parent.

As she arrives from her native home in Poland to study at Sorbonne University in Paris, young Marie Skłodowska is certain she can make a name for herself and change the course of science. She discovers radium, a new chemical element, with her husband Pierre Curie, and she’s lauded with the Nobel Prize.

But she is faced with an overwhelming moral dilemma. As Marie discovers the lifesaving potential of radium to cure cancer, factory workers handling the glowing substance are succumbing to the insidious grip of radium poisoning.

As a woman with society against her, can she wrestle with both the potential and danger of her discovery – and what is she if radium’s dangers overshadow its possibilities?

A story of life and death, ‘Marie Curie’ has already captivated audiences in Korea and Japan with its sweeping score and story and is now brought to London audiences for the first time in a stirring original production directed by Sarah Meadows (Ride).
