Sara, Tom and Michael are three New Yorkers caught in a secret love triangle that could tear their lives apart. Life has not dealt any of them the cards they wanted, and Sara is stuck in the middle, torn between her downtown past and her uptown future. Is the one that got away really worth risking everything for? But in the true tradition of all great murder ballads, when songs of love-gone-wrong are sung, blood must be spilled. The question is… by whom?
Fresh from making a critically acclaimed killing off-Broadway, Murder Ballad is a razor-sharp tale of modern relationships, abandoned dreams and treachery in the big city. Written by the award-winning Julia Jordan with music and lyrics by singer-songwriter Juliana Nash, this is a boldly brilliant and explosive new musical that's set to be London's hottest new sensation.
Murder Ballad opens at The Arts Theatre in the West End on September 30th 2016. Press Night will be held on October 5th 2016.
