New musical The House of Mirrors and Hearts to premiere at the Arcola Theatre

The House of Mirrors and Hearts will premiere in Studio 1 at the Arcola Theatre this summer.

The new British chamber musical opens on 7th July (previews from 2nd July) and runs until 1st August 2015. 

Described as a "timeless, atmospheric and intoxicating musical," The House of Mirrors and Hearts is a contemporary British story about a dysfunctional family haunted by their past.

The House of Mirrors and Hearts will be directed by Ryan McBryde. Musical direction is by David Randall with design by David Woodhead. Casting is to be announced. The show is written by Eamonn O'Dwyer (music and lyrics) and Robert Gilbert (book and lyrics)

The House of Mirrors and Hearts is presented by Aria Entertainment and Perfect Pitch, two companies dedicated to the development of original British musicals. 

Katy Lipson (Aria Entertainment) and Andy Barnes (Perfect Pitch) said: "We are so thrilled to be joining forces on this beautiful British chamber musical. Both our companies are known individually for our work with emerging British composers and new writing but The House of Mirrors and Hearts is the first project we have had the wonderful opportunity to partner on. 

"We both feel positive about the current climate of new musical theatre with more and more great initiatives and opportunities arising for new writing. Collaborating with like-minded people has to be the way forward in supporting the evident array of emerging talent."
