Paper Hearts the Musical

Written by Liam O’Rafferty


Somewhere, there are worlds waiting


A world premiere of up-lifting new British musical set in a high-street bookshop. Aspiring writer Atticus Smith lives avidly through his novel's characters until the arrival of the spirited and audacious Lilly Sprocket.


Paper Hearts is set in two parallel worlds, Atticus’s own modern day life, and the 1940s Russia torn apart by the 2nd World War that his characters inhabit. The thumping upbeat numbers of the contemporary pop-folk score performed by a company of 11 actors - many performing as actor-musicians, guide you through a tale of love, passion, and betrayal, among books.


“A musical set in a bookshop is such an original idea. Watch out West End!”

Simon May, Composer, East Enders theme



Directed by Scottish Daily Mail Award Winner Tania Azevedo
