Why watch Roles We'll Never Play?

  • Roles We’ll Never Play brings a unique concept to the West End, featuring stars performing in roles outside of their typical casting.
  • Tom Duern, known for his contributions to the 25th Olivier Anniversary Concert and the all-male Pirates of Penzance, is at the helm of this theatrical extravaganza.
  • The concert has previously seen huge success at the Apollo and the Vaudeville, and now you have the chance to see it at the Lyric Theatre in London!

You have always witnessed your favorite artists inhabit their signature roles and ace the characters they have been popular for. But what if we tell you that you could witness a night where some swapping between artists and roles will sweep you off your feet? On March 7, 2022, Tom Duern will bring you the most unique concept and the craziest West End miscast ever where renowned artists break free from the characters that have become their identity and slip into unexplored and vivid roles.
After a successful debut in December 2020 at the Apollo theatre and two insane sold-out nights at Vaudeville Theatre in May 2021, the show is ready to set the stage on fire in 2022 edition with the grandest venue so far.
From Pearce Barron, Maisey Bawden, Luke Bayer, Danny Becker, Courtney Bowman to Kyle Birch, Joe Churms, Sebastian Harwood, Samara Rawlins, Hannah Willars, and Ella Williams, the show features every West End star that you can think of.


Roles We’ll Never Play is a one-of-a-kind musical theatre concert that gives the performers a lifetime opportunity to sing and immerse in the songs that lie outside their popular roles. This mix bowl of intriguing performances is a one-night-only opportunity for you to experience a parallel universe of surprises and fun.
In the 2022 edition, Tom Duern, the master of putting up the most amazing concerts around London, brings you the greatest lineup of musical theatre stars and the most beautiful night brimming with music and enjoyment.
