Tickets for Violet are now available for the London run. Do not miss the UK premiere of this moving production at the Charing Cross Theatre!
Violet was facially disfigured as a child and it has shaped her life, she remembers and sees the reactions of the people she meets from day to day. Determined to make a change, Violet decides to take her life savings and head from North Caroline halfway across the US to Oklahoma where she hopes to find a miraculous cure. The people she meets along the way are sure to mould her in ways she didn’t expect, but what will she find waiting for her at the end of her road?
Based on Doris Betts’ short story The Ugliest Pilgrim the musical Violet made its initial debut off-Broadway.
