The Time Traveller's Wife


Nominated for three WhatsOnStage Awards 2024, including Best New Musical

After a two week run at Storyhouse, Chester, THE TIME TRAVELLER’S WIFE is now playing at London’s Apollo Theatre!

Based on Audrey Niffenegger’s internationally best-selling novel, this new British musical is thrillingly brought to life with original songs from Grammy Award winners Joss Stone and Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart. Adapted by multi award-winning playwright Lauren Gunderson, the London premiere is helmed by acclaimed British director Bill Buckhurst (Sweeney Todd), with design by Anna Fleischle and illusions by Chris Fisher (Back to the Future: The Musical & Harry Potter and the Cursed Child).

From the producers of Back To The Future: The Musical and Ghost, this mesmerising new production of THE TIME TRAVELLER’S WIFE is a joyous, uplifting celebration of the strange wonder of love, whoever and whenever you are.

What is The Time Traveller’s Wife about?

Their relationship is like no other. And yet, it’s like all others. Clare is a talented sculptor and Henry is – well – a time traveller. They meet, fall in love, and marry – but not in that order. Flung apart by time but united by love, Henry is always trying to get back to Clare. Their journey is one of resilience, impossibilities, and trying to hold on to each other when everything is pulling you apart.
