The Barn Theatre, Oxted, is staging an open-air production of the Tony Award-winning musical Parade this Saturday and Sunday, July 27-28.

4527 PARADE_BARN & MINACK_A3_POSTERS_FINAL.inddParade is the true story of a tragic miscarriage of justice, brought to emotional and theatrical life by acclaimed playwright Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy), with music by Jason Robert Brown (Songs for a New World and The Last Five Years).

The musical, set in America’s Deep South in 1913, draws on influences from Sondheim and rhythm and blues, ragtime and gospel.

The musical focuses on the evolving relationship between the accused, Leo Frank and his wife, Lucille, who fall in love in the midst of adversity.

This is a tragic and inspiring love story that will stay with you for a long time to come.
