Overview

Book and lyrics by Dorothy Reynolds and Julian Slade

Salad Days is set in a sunny summer in1954 where Timothy and Jane have just graduated from university. Under pressure from their parents to find a job and a husband, respectively, Timothy’s family send him off to meet a series of influential and increasingly eccentric uncles, while Jane’s mother lines up a string of eligible but dull potential husbands. When a passing tramp offers to pay the pair to look after his mobile piano for a month, they jump at the chance, but soon discover that when this piano plays it gives everyone within earshot an irresistible and unstoppable urge to dance. Choreographic hilarity, magic and madness ensue!

Salad Days endeavours to put a smile on your face and a tap in your toes with an energetic and peppy score featuring songs such as We Said We Wouldn’t Look Back, Look At Me, I’m Dancing and We’re Looking For A Piano.

The show received its world premiere at Bristol Old Vic in 1954, followed by a record-breaking West End run of more than 2,200 performances and an ongoing reputation as one of the best loved musicals of all time.

Direct from Sasha Regan’s award-winning Union Theatre, Salad Days is escapist, optimistic, fun and joyous and is the perfect antidote to those end-of-summer blues.
