MARIO! A Super Musical is a parody piece that asks what happens to characters in video games without their protagonist. When the red-suited mustachioed plumber goes missing, the Princess understands she has to break the cycle of her role as “damsel in distress, turn the tables and go on an adventure to rescue her rescuer. With the clock ticking down and the fate of the virtual world at stake, will it be mission complete or game over?’

MARIO! a super musical produced by Transfer Productions.

Book & Lyrics by John Hudson

ADRIFT is a two-person musical exploring themes of belonging, identity and self-worth through a father-daughter relationship. 

Lizzie came to the United States as an eight-year-old refugee, then called Lisette. In 1946, aged forty-two and a successful New York photographer, she is prompted to recount significant episodes from her life - snapshots, as she calls them. 

She also remembers or partly imagines moments in the life of her father, Pierre, who left his French village for Paris in the 1890s, looking for fame.

Over the course of approximately one hour, and through twelve songs, both characters struggle to achieve confidence and a sense of who they really are.

Ultimately, Lizzie recalls the journey that brought her to the United States and separated her forever from her beloved Papa, when they both travelled on the ill-fated voyage of the Titanic.

Miss Havisham Begins.jpg

Book & Lyrics by John Hudson
Music by Winston Eade  

What changed her chain of flowers into thorns? In Rochester, 1793, 28-year-old Augusta Havisham, having led an unusually cloistered life, faces an uncertain future now her domineering, unloving father has passed away, inexplicably leaving her his entire fortune. Over two acts, with a cast of four women and four men, Becoming Miss Havisham explores the backstory of the infamous Dickens character, asking what turned her into the woman she is in 'Great Expectations'. ‘Who is Miss Havisham? A fiend from a fable or someone unable to keep from becoming the thing she became?’
