A Christmas Carol – as told by Jacob Marley (deceased)

Friday 11th December 2020, 7:30 pm

THIS PRODUCTION HAS NOW SOLD OUT

Jacob Marley is dead and condemned to an eternity of carrying a heavy chain, forged in life; a life to which he can no longer return except to recount the tale of his miserly business partner, Ebenezer Scrooge, and the path that lead to his redemption. Through Marley’s words, we learn how three magical spirits opened Scrooge’s eyes and made him realise the true value of love and forgiveness.

Told from the perspective of Scrooge’s deceased business partner, this award-winning stage adaptation has been hailed as the “definitive telling of A Christmas Carol” (Redditch Standard), and rated as one of “the top Christmas shows in London, Edinburgh and around the UK” (High 50 Culture). …

Fagin’s Last Hour

Fri 30 Oct 2020, 7:30PM

Produced and performed by James Hyland, Fagin’s Last Hour is an amazing and engaging retelling of Oliver Twist from Fagin’s perspective.
Hyland gives an incredible performance bursting with energy: his impressive vocals and performance conjure up Fagin who is menacing but also a venerable frightened and desperate man. The audience also meets the quiet and shy Oliver, a nimble and confident Artful Dodger, a dark, frightening and violent Bill Sikes as well as a warm-hearted and confident Nancy and even Bulls Eye the dog. Spellbinding. He shifts roles with ease, keeping the dramatic tension and the play flowing. The set, costume and makeup are excellent, evoking the eerie, claustrophobic atmosphere of a prison cell holding a desperate and frightened Fagin. …

.I was mightily impressed not only by their chisel-sharp a cappella harmonies, but by the way that they act out the song, to frequent giggles and guffaws from their audience. They claim that the answer to every problem is beer. Show me a folkie who disagrees with that.” …
