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?’

Rhian Lynch sings Free from Mario! a super musical

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?’

Laura England sings 'Ignored', from 'Becoming Miss Havisham'
