Don’t miss the world premiere of this landmark new musical about the life of Dusty Springfield, based on personal memories from those who knew her best and featuring many of her blazingly soulful pop hits, including I Only Want to Be with YouSon of a Preacher Man and You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me.

The new musical charting the life of one of Britain’s most successful and enduringly popular singers will receive its world premiere in Bath. Based on the authorised biography of Dusty Springfield by Vicki Wickham, Dusty features a fiercely funny and emotionally charged script from BAFTA and Olivier nominated writer Jonathan Harvey and what promises to be a career-defining performance from Katherine Kingsley. Her 1969 masterpiece Dusty In Memphis is considered one of the greatest albums of all time.

The cast also includes Rufus Hound and Roberta Taylor (EastEnders, The Bill)
