The Time Traveller's Wife: a new musical at Storyhouse, Chester 30 September — 15 October 2022 Tickets from £22.50 — Book now

A brand new musical adaptation of The Time Traveller’s Wife is set to receive its world premiere at Storyhouse before moving to the West End.

Based on Audrey Niffenegger’s international best-seller, the production will be brought from page to stage with original music and lyrics by English singer-songwriter Joss Stone and multi-Grammy Winner Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart.

The production will be brought to the stage with original music and lyrics by Joss Stone and Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart.

Stone and Stewart, who have previously collaborated on the SuperHeavy album (2011) and other recordings, join forces once again to create the songs for the unusual love story of Henry and Clare.

Henry, a Chicago librarian, suffers from a rare condition that causes his genetic clock to periodically reset. The disorder means that he drifts uncontrollably back and forth through time. Hurtling into his past and future – on one of his visits – he meets Clare, an artist, and the two marry. Now, every relationship has its problems and complexities but these are further amplified by Henry’s inability to remain in one time and place. He never knows where he will end up next but he does know he will always find his way back to Clare.

A heart-racing and beautiful production…

With additional lyrics by Kait Kerrigan and a book by Lauren Gunderson, The Time Traveller’s Wife: a new musical is brought to Storyhouse by the acclaimed West End producers of Back to The Future and Ghost.

This show has all the trappings of being a heart-racing and beautiful production.
