This evening is the press night of Burnt Oak at the Leicester Square Theatre starring Mikaela Newton as Susan. Burnt Oak is a tightly and sensitively observed look at human relationships and the way that lives can quickly unravel when dreams and real life collide. Set in working class London, Burnt Oak, that gives the play its name.

Mikaela, like her character Susan, is also a native Londoner. Her recent credits include playing the role of Kath Butterfield in Hollyoaks and performing as Tobias in Sweeney Todd at the WhatsOnStage Awards 2015, where they then went on to win Best Off-West End Production.
