Cast Announced For The World Premiere of KIN at Factory Playhouse, Hitchin

After two sell out concert performances at the Other Palace Theare, London and over one million views on TikTok, 'Kin' a new British musical will be making its world premiere at The Factory Playhouse Hitchin from 7 - 11 September, 2022.

Noah, a skilled rock climber, is broken and physically scarred after a tragic accident but Ashville, the small southern American town he lives in, has other problems.

The KIN, a controversial community attracting people from all over the world, has purchased an old ranch in the little town, causing unthinkable conflict with the townsfolk. Misfit Noah, the mayor's son, desperate to prove himself to his father, is forced to take matters into his own hands and save the town from disaster. Noah climbs down the side of the cliff, the only entrance and secretly joins the
community. What Noah doesn't know, is that Cora, a Kinsperson, is going to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And what neither of them know, is that they are going to change each other's lives forever.
