A sneak preview of this brand-new play, brimming with stars, ahead of its opening at Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s, Other Palace Theatre in London in 2020. 

Based on a true story, Ana Costea is a former political prisoner in Romania, who upon the overthrow of Ceausescu wrote to George Best explaining that he and John Lennon had given so many prisoners hope, because they were the essence of the word freedom.  She also wrote that her dream would be to one day have the opportunity to meet George.  Now, on her death bed, issues from Ana’s past are preventing her from passing peacefully. The spirits of George and John come to help her understand unsolved mysteries of her life and Ana gets to live her dream. 

This abridged staged reading features  members of the wonderful cast followed by a Q&A with writer John Warrington, George’s widow, Alex Best and a cast member.
