The Chimes

…..a magical new piece of music theatre, packed full of colourful characters and haunting melodies, which has been adapted from the second Christmas story by Charles Dickens.



Thursday 7 – Saturday 16 December (St John’s Church, Canton)

Tickets: £16/£12                   Age 14+

The Story

The Chimes’s biting satire was intended to effect real political change. It addresses issues of homelessness, vagrancy and self-respect and if he were alive today, Dickens would be clamouring for a capitalist change of heart to address our present ‘Condition of England’ and of the wider world.

Our production

…. captures the true spirit of Christmas.

True to the spirit of The Chimes, this production has invited a number of men and women who have been homeless and are now striving to rebuild their lives with the support of The Wallich, the Huggard, The Passage and St. Mungo’s to participate in a professional theatre production.

The weaving of the non-professional and professional has, in recent years, created works of stunning originality. Our professional cast and community ensemble have come together to create a magical seasonal alternative, packed full of colourful characters and haunting melodies, which will touch your heart and bring fire to your soul.

Cast: Olivia Rose Aaron, Lucy Benson Brown, Joanna Brookes, Dafydd Emyr, Gruffydd Evans, Rhys Parry Jones, Matthew Jure, Fergus Rees

and an ensemble of men and women who are or have been homeless.

Writer: David Willis
Composer: Conor Linehan
Director: Judith Roberts
Musical Director: Cathal Synnott

Gods and Kings

Sherman Theatre

6 – 9 Sept 7.30pm
Matinee 8 Sept 2.30pm

A man leaves a consultation room facing a choice. It should be a pretty straightforward choice. Take the pill and live. Don’t take the pill and die. But the decision proves to be more difficult; does he risk losing his life or risk no longer being the person he has been all of his life?

Challenging perceptions of what it is to live with mental illness, Gods & Kings is a bracingly honest and often hugely funny real-life story.
