Millennials has music, book and lyrics by Elliot Clay. The premiere production will be directed by Hannah Benson and feature orchestrations by Auburn Jam and choreography by Tinovimbanashe Sibanda, with design and lighting design from Andrew Exeter.

Those on the cast are Georgina Onuorah, Luke Bayer, Hiba Elchikhe, Rob Madge, Hannah Lowther and Ivano Turco.

Millennials turns up the microphone on the lives, the losses, and the frustrations of young people in the modern world.

A generation that is so often defined by tabloid headlines, tweets and, of course, avocados, has picked up the mic and transported us inside their extraordinarily ordinary lives.

Elliot Clay said: “After four years of writing, I couldn’t be more thrilled that Millennials is having its premiere at The Other Palace Studio this summer.

“Some of my favourite musicals growing up were song cycles, so it’s been an exciting challenge putting my own twist on the form and exploring a generation of stories through this collection of pop songs.

“The three singles we released during lockdown had a brilliant response online and I’m so happy that everyone will now be able to come and experience them live. I feel very lucky to be making my professional debut as a writer and to be working with such a fantastic team bringing our show to life!”

Millennials was first workshopped as part of MTFestUK with producer Paul Taylor-Mills saying: “I’m so proud to be presenting the world premiere of Millennials, a brand new British musical by first time writer Elliot Clay.

“The show started its life at MTFestUK and it is brilliant to see that the festival is providing the necessary platform to allow musicals to move into fully produced shows. This is one of four shows to be fully produced from the festival.

“Millennials sets the tone for the type of work we want to create at The Other Palace and I’m excited to start creating this brand new musical with an incredible team.”
