Chewing Gum’s Michaela Coel to star in London-based musical ‘Been So Long’

STARRING ROLE: Michaela Coel

BAFTA AWARD-winning actress Michaela Coel will lead the cast in a London-set musical love story, it has been announced.

Been So Long is based on the critically acclaimed stage musical by Ché Walker and Arthur Darvill that premiered at The Young Vic.

It will see Michaela take on the role of Simone – a young, spirited, single minded mum with the soul of a poet, who is “charmed by a handsome yet troubled stranger”.

Michaela wowed critics and audiences in her BAFTA-winning performance as Tracey in Channel 4’s comedy Chewing Gum, which will hit US Netflix in April.

Been So Long is backed by the British Film Institute (BFI) and Film4.
