Sleeping Arrangements - book signing

Sophie Kinsella with the cast of Sleeping Arrangements

Casting news

THE critically acclaimed Sleeping Arrangements, a new musical based on the novel by Sophie Kinsella, continues at the Landor Theatre until May 12, 2013. Now, fans of both the book and the show have the chance to meet the author at an after show book signing on Tuesday, May 7.

Previously Posted: Casting has been announced for the world premiere of Sleeping Arrangements, a new musical based on the novel by Sophie Kinsella, which runs at the Landor Theatre from April 22 (previews from April 17) to May 12, 2013.

The line up includes Jenny Gayner (as Chloe), Liza Pulman (Amanda), Sabrina Aloueche (Jenna), Grant Neal (Philip), Steve Serlin (Hugh) and Adam Pettigrew (Sam).

Based on the best-selling novel of the same name, the musical tells the tale of Chloe who desperately needs a holiday. She’s sick of making wedding dresses and her partner, Philip has troubles at work. Her wealthy friend Gerard has offered the loan of his luxury villa in Spain – Perfect.

Hugh is not a happy man. His immaculate wife Amanda seems more interested in her new kitchen than him and he works so hard to pay for it, he barely has time for his children. Maybe he’ll have a chance to bond with them on holiday. His friend Gerard has lent him a luxury villa in Spain – Perfect.

Both families arrive at the villa and realise the awful truth – Gerard has double-booked. What no-one else realises is that Chloe and Hugh have a history, and as tensions rise, old passions resurface. It seems that Gerard’s ‘accidental’ double booking may not be an accident after all…
