THE LITTLE BEASTS by Luke Bateman and Michael Conley took place as a work-in-progress production at The Other Palace in July 2017.

Sebastien Torkia, Laura Baldwin, Nina Bell, Seyi Omooba, Ellie-Jane Goddard, Oliver Evans & Tyler Fagan

The show was selected by Andrew Lloyd Webber as part of his new Work In Progress initiative, dedicated to developing new British musicals. These shows were presented with minimal props, set and costume so they could be rewritten and changed throughout the run based on audience feedback.
