Melly Still's critically acclaimed production of Coram Boy will begin performances at the Imperial Theatre on April 16, with an official opening slated for May 2. No casting has been announced.

The play has been adapted by Helen Edmundson from Jamila Gavin's award-winning novel set in 18th-century England. It focuses on two orphans: Toby, who has been saved from an African slave ship, and Aaron, the abandoned son of the heir of a great estate. The show has played two sold-out engagements at London's National Theatre.

The production team include Still and Ti Green (costumes and sets), Paula Constable (lighting), Christopher Shutt (sound), Adrian Sutton (music), and Constantine Kitsopoulous (music direction).
