The twin-sational new musical based on the novel THE PARENT TRAP by Erich Kästner.

This classic tale tells the story of twin girls separated at birth and reunited by chance at a summer camp ten years later. To get to know their parents and reconcile the two halves of their family, they decide to swap places and live each other’s lives.

Best known for the ever-popular Disney movies which made stars of Hayley Mills in1961 and Lindsay Lohan in 1998. This world premiere is directed by Trevor Nunn responsible for some of the world’s greatest musicals (Les Misérables, Starlight Express, Cats and Sunset Boulevard) and comes from the producer of Top Hat, The Play That Goes Wrong and the international hit musical Six.

Identical has music and lyrics by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, the multi award-winning writers of the West End hit  Honk! who also created a new score for the international smash-hit Cameron Mackintosh/Disney production of Mary Poppins, and a book by Stuart Paterson.

Identical is the must-see musical of the summer.


IDENTICAL is produced by Kenny Wax Ltd, Gavin Kalin, Playing Field Ltd, Kevin McCollum and Stewart F. Lane Bonnie Comley. It is co-produced with Nottingham Playhouse.
