Michaelmas Week 5
Based upon real events, PARADE tells the story of Leo Frank, a Jewish man accused of murdering a thirteen-year-old factory girl in a small town in Georgia in 1913. Witness a people that thirst for a conviction, the gripping court room drama that subsequently unfolds and the touching love story between Leo and his wife, Lucille. PARADE shows a quest for justice which is resisted by a world filled with racial and religious tensions but ultimately illustrates the enduring power of love and self-belief against all odds.
Follow this gripping journey: from the shocking discovery of the murdered child, through the corrupt murder investigation, past the court case that became known as the 'Trial of the Century' and Lucille's efforts to clear her husband's name, towards the show's thrilling conclusion.
Following on from the success of the acclaimed production at the Donmar Warehouse in the West End last year, CUMTS bring this unforgettable tale back to life in a spectacular new production - the first musical in the newly refurbished ADC Theatre - featuring Jason Robert Brown's hauntingly beautiful, Tony-award-winning score.
