The last thing he wants to do is celebrate but then has a chance encounter with a lightbulb seller. Bronté Barbé (Beautiful)  is playing The Little Match Girl.

Joining them are Danielle Kassaraté (Wildfire) as the Narrator, with Kate Robson-Stuart (Once) and Leon Scott (Othello) completing the ensemble.
Striking 12 has music by Brendan Milburn and Valerie Vigoda (from the band GrooveLily) with book and lyrics by Milburn, Vigoda and Rachel Sheinkin. It will be directed by Oliver Kaderbhai (Peter Pan), Striking 12 with  design by Natalie Johnson; lighting design by Alex Lewer, musical direction by Ashley Harvey and  choreography by Oliver Kaderbhai and Marah Stafford.
