Olivier Award-winning actress Rebecca Trehearn will star as Rebecca in the UK première of a new version of the Stephen Schwartz musical Rags at Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester from March 2 to April 6.
Rags tells the story of Russian immigrant Rebecca, who, with her son David, travels to America in search of a better life. She must decide what matters more to her: staying true to her roots or adopting a new cultural identity in an attempt to 'fit in'.
