Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour

Following sold-out seasons at the National Theatre, Edinburgh Festival Fringe and UK tour, the smash-hit, award-winning new play from the National Theatre of Scotland and Live Theatre transfers to the West End for a strictly limited season.


From the creator of Billy Elliot (Lee Hall) comes the uplifting and moving story of six Catholic choir girls from Oban, let loose in Edinburgh for one day only.

Funny, heartbreaking and raucously rude, Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour is adapted from Alan Warner’s brilliant novel about six young friends on the cusp of change and is directed by Royal Court Artistic Director Vicky Featherstone.

Featuring the songs of ELO, Our Ladies is a glorious anthem to friendship, youth andgrowing up disgracefully.

Prepare thyself for… really rude language, flashing lights, pyrotechnics, lots of sexual references, excessive drinking, and extensive use of the smoke machine.

Suitable for 16+ years


Sonia Friedman Productions, Scott M. Delman and Tulchin Bartner Productions present the National Theatre of Scotland and Live Theatre production of Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour.

4 star rating

A hilarious, poignant portrait of essentially good, naïve girls having a reckless stab at being bad, and being brave, eager to experience everything life can throw at them.
