Ruby and The Vinyl comes to Royal Court Studio


A new musical comedy co-written by John Godber is being staged at the Royal Court Studio this week.

Ruby and The Vinyl, which opens tonight and runs until Saturday, has been created in collaboration with the award-winning playwright’s daughter Elizabeth.

The quirky, heart-warming story centres on two lost souls who meet in a vintage vinyl store, and whose passion for all things retro takes them to places they could have never dreamed of.

John Godber said: “I’ve really enjoyed working with Elizabeth on this funny, touching new musical. Her characters are unique and fresh, the songs are catchy and the singing is amazing."

And Elizabeth Godber, who has written several musicals in her own right, added: "Ruby is such a feelgood show, I'm sure people of all ages will enjoy a good night out; it's kind of a love story, but not..."

The production stars Millie Gaston and George Reid while BBC supporting artist – and former LIPA student – singer-songwriter Ruby Macintosh has written some songs.

Ruby and The Vinyl is produced by the John Godber Company.

Royal Court executive producer Kevin Fearon said: “We’re so excited to have a new comedy show in our studio. After two years, it is nice for us to get a good run of shows down there starting with this one which is running for four days.”

Ruby and The Vinyl is at the Royal Court Studio from March 30-April 2. Tickets HERE
