Using Abba’s hits, Judy Craymer’s book is set on a Greek paradise island. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.

The show will play the Edinburgh Playhouse from Tuesday 29 November 2016 to Saturday 7 January 2017. Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Monday 7 December 2015 and to ATG Cardholders and Groups on Monday 23 November.

Casting for the UK tour has yet to be announced.
