A musical drama about two literary pioneers

2023 marked the centenary of the death of Katherine Mansfield,
a trailblazing modernist writer born in New Zealand. Two Tigers tells the story of her brief but extraordinary life, and her turbulent love affair with editor John Middleton Murry who ensured her legacy.

Sue Casson's re-imagining of her musical premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival last summer. Well received with audiences and critics alike, it
was the only British show to be listed on the anniversary website. Further performance opportunities are presently being explored, A short film featuring songs from the show was part of online celebration, KM100 last autumn.

Lily Casson's show on stage - and online 

As well as creating the role of Katherine Mansfield in Two Tigers at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Lily Casson brought I Heart Musicals - where musicals are the star of the show - to the stage for the first time.

Described by Broadway Baby as a 'delightful and beautifully sung... twist on a classic cabaret' Lily is now exploring opportunities to bring this show to a wider audience. In addition, Lily's blogs, micro-casts and playlists are being brought together for the first time in a brand-new website, which is presently in development.
