About the show

Skid Row – a place of despair and broken dreams. Void of all nature.

Nature and prosperity has the chance to return when hapless florist Seymour discovers a new plant with interesting appetites.

But as Seymour’s fame and fortune grow, so do the plant’s demands, reaching unsustainable levels of consumption.

Josh Seymour directs a bold new interpretation of the wickedly dark comedy musical. 

Josh Seymour’s work as director includes Musik at the Edinburgh Festival and Leicester Square Theatre, Homos, or Everyone in America and Adding Machine: A Musical at the Finborough Theatre; One Arm (2016 Off West End Award for Best Director) at Southwark Playhouse; American Idiot, Parade and Urinetown for Mountview Academy; and Loserville at Stafford Gatehouse.

As associate director work includes Follies at the National Theatre (2017 & 2019); A Christmas Carol at the Old Vic; Red at Wyndham’s Theatre; Beautiful – The Carole King Musical at the Aldwych; and My Night with Reg at the Apollo. As assistant director work includes City of Angels, Fathers and Sons, Privacy, My Night With Reg and Versailles at Donmar Warehouse; Candide at the Menier Chocolate Factory; Our House on UK tour; and Sixty-Six Books at the Bush Theatre. Josh was Runner-Up for the 2018 RTST Peter Hall Award.

This production contains smoke, haze, strobe lighting, loud noises and scenes of a distressing nature. For more information please speak to a member of staff.

Post-show Q&A

On Monday 17 February, we are hosting a post-show Q&A with the cast, crew and creative team. Taking place after the 2pm performance, ticket holders are invited to discover how the current climate crisis influenced the production and discuss sustainability in the creative arts.

Relaxed Performance

On Tuesday 18 February 2pm, we will be holding a Relaxed Performance of Little Shop of Horrors. A relaxed performance is designed to make theatre more accessible to anyone who might normally feel uncomfortable in a traditional theatre setting.

These performances are there to support and make theatre accessible to people with Autism, Learning Differences, additional Sensory and Communication needs, Dementia and additional needs. They are also perfect for audience members with babes in arms or who have never been to the theatre before. A Relaxed Performance is not just limited to these audience members though. We will welcome everybody who wants to book to see the show.
