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.

Miss Havisham Begins.jpg


Book & Lyrics by John Hudson & Nikki Racklin
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?’

Book & Lyrics by John Hudson
Music by Winston Eade  

In a New York hospital one night in 1946 a photographer, LIZZIE, forty-two years old and originally from France, recounts moments from her life to her son, who is in a coma. With her is the ghost of her father, PIERRE, telling his story alongside hers. Their stories come together as they are about to emigrate to America, when she is eight years old.

Loosely based on a true story, and with a touching, magical conclusion, ADRIFT is a one-act two-person musical by Winston Eade (Music) and John Hudson (Book and Lyrics), exploring love, loss, heartbreak and survival.

ADRIFT is a new heart-warming musical!
