Band of Gold was the ground-breaking crime drama that captivated over 15 million viewers each week when it aired on ITV and it’s coming to the Mayflower Theatre stage from 4-8 February 2020.Following the huge, sell-out success of Fat Friends the Musical, Kay Mellor makes a triumphant return in the world premiere stage production of her multi-award winning TV series.
This new, murderous but at times heart-warming and humorous stage adaptation, tells the story of a group of women – Carol, Rose, Anita and a young mother, Gina – as they battle to survive whilst working in a notorious red-light district with a killer on the loose. When one of their colleagues is murdered, they need to find the killer before they strike again.
Band of Gold on stage will feature a star-studded cast including Gaynor Faye, best known for Emmerdale, Playing the Field and Calendar Girls, Eastenders’ star Laurie Brett, Kieron Richardson of Hollyoaks and Heartbeat fame and X Factor winner Shayne Ward. Producer Josh Andrews and Kay Mellor have teamed up again for Band of Gold, to be directed by Mellor, with set design by Janet Bird, costume by Yvonne Milnes, lighting by Jason Taylor, sound by Mic Pool and music by Hal Lindes.
