After Anomaly earlier this year, I’m delighted to return to the Old Red Lion Theatre to work with another exciting up-and-coming female playwright and production company.
“I love the bones of yeh then and I love them now.”
Christmas Eve. 1948. Deep in the heart of Galway, Eamonn, the fattest baby you’ve ever seen, is found abandoned in a manger.
Seventy years later, after struggling to make amends with his estranged daughter Sarah and grandson Ben, one final and fateful action leaves the next two generations of his family reeling.
Winner of the Methuen Drama and Marlowe Society Other Prize 2017, Rachel Tookey‘s Bromley Bedlam Bethlehem is a visceral and candid new play about the lengths we’ll go to for the ones we love.
The cast are Daragh O’Malley (star of the long-running hit show Sharpe alongside Sean Bean), Madeleine Bowyer (Black Mirror, Emmerdale, Holby City) and Daniel Rainford, directed by Thomas Martin with music by multi-award-winning composer Hollie Buhagiar. MGCFutures-supported company Voxie Productions presents.
At the 7.30pm, 90-minute performance of Bromley Bedlam Bethlehem at the Old Red Lion Theatre on Tuesday 7 May 2019, I’ll be joined by writer Rachel Tookey and the company. Any questions? Join us!
