BA Musical Theatre students from the Drama department at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland present Merrily We Roll Along.

Merrily We Roll Along

It started out like a song. Young friends Franklin Shepherd and Charley Kringus thought they could change the world with their words and their music. And writer Mary Flynn who loved them both (albeit differently) was their devoted companion and collaborator.

How did they get there from here?
