Susie Salmon is just like any other young girl. She wants to be beautiful, adores her charm bracelet and has a crush on a boy from school. There’s one big difference though – Susie is dead.

Alice Sebold’s best-selling novel The Lovely Bones is a unique coming-of-age tale that captured the hearts of readers throughout the world. This acclaimed adaptation is an unforgettable play about life after loss.

With a large cast of versatile and talented actors, visually stunning staging and a spellbinding soundtrack, this wonderfully creative production is an exciting, emotional and uplifting theatrical tour-de-force.

Charlotte Beaumont plays Susie Salmon. She has previously appeared at Chichester in Playhouse Creatures, while her television credits include Chloe Latimer in Broadchurch and Kenzie Calhoun in Waterloo Road.
