But on his way to fitting in he doesn't tell the whole truth and, as events spiral, Evan faces a reckoning with himself and everyone around him.

Dear Evan Hansen has a score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the Oscar-winning composers of The Greatest Showman, and a book by Steven Levenson.

This new production is directed by Adam Penford, the artistic director of the Nottingham Playhouse, and the songs include You Will Be Found, For Forever and Waving Through a Window. 

Online booking opens at 7.30pm on November 24 2023
