Simeon’s Watch: Trailer

After a great opening run at Friargate Theatre, the first responses to Simeon’s Watch are in…

“Moving, funny and thought provoking”

All three actors inhabited the characters beautifully
…it was really special.”

“Very good, it took a very relevant but difficult subject,
brought it to life and showed a way of hope.”

“In awe of what I’ve just seen, spot on, truthful and important.”

We’re delighted by the way the show is being received and are looking forward to taking the show on tour round the country. Looking for a show near you? Try our handy tour map.

Baked Alaska – at Coventry Cathedral

We were thrilled to take Baked Alaska to the Reconciling A Wounded Planet at Coventry Cathedral, a perfect fit as the two day conference was looking at “stories of hope’ in the midst of the growing environmental crisis”.

Even better, The Church Times were there and Pat Ashworth gave the show a fantastic review. Below are a few choice quotes and you can read the full piece on their website.

“a robust and delicious satire on climate change”

“This is pure Riding Lights: funny, colourful, biting”

“You couldn’t feel passive about the issue after watching this”

We’re also really enjoying take the show to Cathedrals, partly because the set looks fantastic in such large spaces. Here’s the audience gathering ready for the show at Coventry.

Audience reaction to The Alchemist

Tuesday night was press night for The Alchemist, and the Belgrade Theatre captured some of the audience reaction to the show. Do take a look…

We’re also starting to get a few reviews in too. Here’s a couple of our favourite quotes so far:

“A pacey and polished production that demands your fullest attention from start to finish.” 
(Daventry Express)

“The characters are so vibrant, the acting of such quality, that this is an experience that will command your attention while rewarding you amply with laughs.”
(Leamington Courier)

There’s also a fantastic comment from an audience member on the comments section of the Belgrade website (where you can also find out more about the show) Of course, if you’ve seen it yourself, we’d love to hear what you thought too!
