Carrie Hope Fletcher is a woman of many talents. A musical theatre actress, singer, songwriter, best selling author and YouTuber, there is nothing she can’t do and more importantly, she does everything with the biggest smile on her face.
Earlier this week, Carrie teased that she had an announcement to make and fans online had all kinds of suggestions as to what it would be. However, did you guess that the announcement would combine two of Carrie’s favourite things in the world?
In her latest video, Carrie revealed that she will be releasing a brand new book called When The Curtain Falls. Due for release on July 12 2018, the book is set to be a spellbinding story of unrequited love and revenge, based in a fictitious theatre in London’s West End.
That’s right, Carrie is writing a book inspired by the theatre, something which has been an enormous part of her life ever since she was a child. With a beaming smile on her face throughout the video, Carrie is evidently so excited about her new project and so are we!

Want to know more about When The Curtain Falls? Check out the official synopsis below.
Theatres have a certain kind of magic. When the curtain rises, we are all enraptured by the glare of the lights and the smell of the greasepaint but it’s when the curtain falls that the real magic begins . . .
In 1952 two young lovers meet, in secret, at the beautiful Southern Cross theatre in the very heart of London’s West End. Their relationship is made up of clandestine meetings and stolen moments because there is someone who will make them suffer if he discovers she is no longer ‘his’. But life in the theatre doesn’t always go according to plan and tragedy and heartache are waiting in the wings for all the players . . .
Almost seventy years later, a new production of When the Curtain Falls arrives at the theatre, bringing with it Oscar Bright and Olive Green and their budding romance. Very soon, though, strange things begin to happen and they learn about the ghost that’s haunted the theatre since 1952, a ghost who can only be seen on one night of the year. Except the ghost is appearing more often and seems hell bent on sabotaging Oscar and Olive. The young couple realise they need to right that wrong from years gone by, but can they save themselves before history repeats itself and tragedy strikes once more?
Dubbed as Moulin Rouge meets Phantom of the Opera by Carrie’s editor, we’re SO excited to find out how the story will unfold and how the two eras intertwine. With two incredible fiction novels under her belt already, we have high hopes for Carrie’s latest offering.
When The Curtain Falls is available to pre-order here.
