New musical For You I’d Wait is to run at London’s The Turbine Theatre this May.

Written by emerging musical theatre writing duo Golby & West (Sophie Golby and Thomas West), the piece will run for two weeks from 11 – 21 May 2022.


The piece tells the stories of six characters who are caught up in the 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris.

On the cast are Olivia Walker-Toward, Michael Karl-Lewis, Gemma Pearce, Billie Kerr, Jerome Lincoln, Charlotte Hannan and Amy Leek.

The production will be co-directed by Samantha Pears and Elsa Strachan with musical director Jenna Dyckhoff and lighting designer Olivia Bailey.

On the 13th November we pay homage to the victims. That’s the only time you think of us. For you, life goes on. But for us, it doesn’t.’

Set to a contemporary rock score, For You I’d Wait follows the lives of 6 characters before, during and after the 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris. Throughout the show we explore how the character’s lives are turned upside in one night, the process of healing, and learning to carry on. The audience are invited to explore the world of these character’s seemingly perfect relationships, and delve further into the choices they make as they encounter milestones in their lives

Golby & West said: “We are so excited to be bringing our very first musical to life at the Turbine Theatre. We have poured our hearts into creating For You I’d Wait, and can’t wait to present it to a real life audience. Writing is something we’ve been passionate about since we met at London College of Music. We can’t believe how far this story has come from a small studio in Ealing, to making our debut.’

Paul Taylor-Mills, Artistic Director of The Turbine Theatre, added: “The premier of For You I’d Wait at the Turbine Theatre is very exciting. New writers are close to our hearts, and it’s more important than ever to showcase real world stories and experiences. The message of For You I’d Wait is one that sits close to everyone’s hearts: Love while you can, and learn to enjoy and embrace every aspect of life.”
