A bittersweet story about youth, friendship and hope. Told backwards.

Set in the glittering world of American showbiz, Merrily We Roll Along follows the journey of three extraordinary friends as they grow up, and grow apart. Beginning in 1976, their friendship lies in tatters. Frank is a musical genius who has sold out. Charley is an idealist still clinging to his dreams. Mary is a brilliant novelist who has given up writing entirely. The show traces their friendship through the decades back to 1957, the time they were young and believed they could change the world.

With its extraordinary score, powerful story and sharply comic script, University of Oxford students present Stephen Sondheim’s rarely-performed musical masterpiece.

Duration: 2 hours 25mins with interval
