Samantha Barks, Richard Fleeshman and Frances Ruffelle Bend It Like Beckham Workshop

A workshop has been held for the proposed new musical Bend It Like Beckham (based on the 2002 film of the same name) with Samantha Barks playing Jules (Keira Knightley in the film).

Tara Divina played Jess the Sikh schoolgirl who wants to be able to play like her hero.

It was a pretty impressive run through including Frances Ruffelle, Shobna Gulati, Preeya Kalidas and Richard Fleeshman which was directed by Gurinder Chadha (director and  co-writer of the film). Howard Goodall and Charles Hart are working on the score and a choreographic workshop is expected to be held before the end of the year.

The plan is to have the musical ready by the end of 2014 or early 2015.
