The Little Big Things – Based on a real-life autobiography
You want something a bit different? Try this, an extraordinary true story about an ordinary young man. When Henry has an accident and his spinal cord is crushed he’s left in a wheelchair, paralysed from the shoulders down. The moment of the accident changed everything – so how does he cope? As Henry learns to handle the new world he finds himself in, will he work out a way to take control? And can he stop his family from falling apart?
The musical is inspired by the Sunday Times best-selling autobiography by Henry Fraser himself. The result is a fresh new British musical with an ‘explosive’ theatrical pop soundtrack, and this is the world premiere production. Billed as ‘uplifting and colourful’, it’s a real life-affirming story of courage and transformation. It also serves as a reminder to us all that the little things in life really do matter the most.

What's the story behind The Little Big Things?
The Little Big Things theatre tickets whisks us to a show that’s enjoyed several workshops in recent years, organised by producer Michael Harrison, directed by Luke Sheppard, and featuring stars like Ben Joyce who delighted us in Back To The Future. Michael Harrison and Nica Burns are the producers. As Nica Burns said in a press statement, “The Little Big Things, our first musical and a world premiere, is our fifth and final production to open in our first year @sohoplace. A big thank you to brilliant musicals producer Michael Harrison for bringing us this exciting project, authored by a new British musical theatre writing team and with an actor who is a wheelchair user at its heart.”
Henry Fraser also has something to say about the musical that reflects his life and success so beautifully: “There have been many things that have happened since my accident that I never thought about in life, never planned and really surprised me, in a great way. This musical is one of those moments. The guys have been great to work with and the moment they played me a couple of songs I was sold. I still can’t believe it’s actually happening and it makes me incredibly excited and nervous.”
