1963. In quiet Lake Charles, Louisiana, the destruction of a Confederate
statue might just signal that change is in the air… But, whatever the
progress of the civil rights movement, in the Gellman household things seem
just the same – for now at least.
Eight year old Noah, heartbroken by the death of his mother and his father’s
remarriage, sneaks down to the basement to spend time with the black maid he
idolises, Caroline Thibodeaux: Caroline who runs everything. Whilst the
basement may seem a fantastical place – even the appliances have a voice of
their own – Caroline’s work there is repetitive and badly paid. But when Mrs
Gellman comes up with a way for her to take a little more money home, the
consequences for Caroline and Noah’s relationship are not what anybody might
An Olivier Award winning musical with a hugely original, highly eclectic and
uniquely American score, Caroline, or Change creates an uplifting and
profound portrait of America at a time of momentous social upheaval.
Tony Kushner and Jeanine Tesori’s celebrated musical makes a highly
anticipated transfer to Hampstead following its critically acclaimed
sell-out run at Chichester Festival Theatre earlier this summer.
