The Time Traveller’s Wife has had its world premiere at Storyhouse before moving to the West End.

This incredible theatrical premiere is based on Audrey Niffenegger’s international sensation – The Time Traveller’s Wife – a best-selling novel and world-wide hit film. Brought to life on stage with music and lyrics by global superstar Joss Stone and multi Grammy Winner Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart, and from the acclaimed West End producers of Back to The Future and Ghost, this is a heart-racing and devastatingly gorgeous theatrical journey like no other.

Their love story is like no other. And yet, it’s like all others. They meet, fall in love and marry – but not in that order. Henry travels through time and through Clare’s past, present and future. Their love is the ultimate test and the greatest of romances, beset with surprises, pain and adventures.
