Those Magnificent Men

Chocks away! Following two highly popular tours, there are still a few performances to be enjoyed of our acclaimed production of Mitchell & Nixon‘s hit play Those Magnificent Men – the nail-biting, side-splitting true story of Alcock and Brown and the first ever non-stop transatlantic flight.

Gilbert (No Sullivan)

Gilbert (No Sullivan), our lively adaptation of tall tales and bonkers ballads by comic genius W. S. Gilbert (of Gilbert and Sullivan fame) was very warmly welcomed and reviewed on a thirty-two date tour. Performed by Radio 4 regular David Mounfield and the Ornate Johnsons’ Brian Mitchell, the show, supported by Arts Council England culminated in a performance as part of the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival in Harrogate. Details here.
