Interactive Theatre International presents…

ONLY FOOLS THE (CUSHTY) DINING EXPERIENCE

5th October until 15th December 2018
Radisson Blu Edwardian Grafton Hotel, 130 Tottenham Court Road, London W1T 5AY

It’s the show they’ve all been asking for, and it’s by the people behind the worldwide smash hit, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience.

This fully immersive, brand new show transports audiences to The Nags Head to meet the pride of Peckham in a night of eating, wheeling and dealing. It’s a t’riffic night out with some cushty pub grub – and you’d be a plonker to miss it!

The fun starts from the moment audiences join the Trotters and their friends for a knees-up. Meanwhile, of course, Del tries to drum up some cash and make a cheeky saving on the side. But why is the pub closed on the busiest night of the week? There’s money to be made and debts to be paid!

Only Fools The (cushty) Dining Experience is a wholly original immersive theatre show written by Interactive Theatre International in loving tribute to the BBC’s Only Fools & Horses TV series.
 

Times:
Every Friday and Saturday Evening at 7.30pm

Ticket Prices:
Tickets: £49, including a 3 course meal

BOHO DAYS
 For the first time, a new book examines the complete output of Pulitzer Prize and Tony award-winning composer Jonathan Larson.

“Boho Days: The Wider Works of Jonathan Larson,” written by J. Collis and authorized by the Larson estate, will be released in digital and print formats on October 16th, 2018.

Covering Larson’s work from student cabarets at Adelphi University through RENT’s creative process, “Boho Days” tells the story of a young composer on the edge of a rapidly changing New York theatre scene. Based on extensive archival research and interviews with over 60 of Larson’s associates and collaborators, Collis’ book features discussion and analysis of major works such as Superbia, tick, tick… BOOM!, J.P. Morgan Saves the Nation, and RENT. “Boho Days” also addresses a number of lesser-known Larson works including his educational theatre compositions, a collaboration with National Lampoon, and the children’s video Away We Go!

“I initially wrote an article about Superbia,” said Collis, an alumni of Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. “It became clear pretty quickly that there was so much more to write about, that nobody was writing about it, and that the first step would be to demystify the collection and let people know where to start.” The article, “Static on a Screen”, was published in Studies in Musical Theatre from Intellect Ltd., and a revised version featuring additional research is included in “Boho Days.”

J. Collis earned his Master of Arts in Theatre Studies from the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama before working as a part-time freelance theatre and media critic. Following a path into production, he has since moved into film localization and streaming media. He currently resides in Berlin, Germany.

“Boho Days” is now available globally for preorder in hardback (ISBN 978-3-00-059113-6) and digitally (978-3-00-059112-9) in the USA, Canada, UK, and Germany. Hard copies are available from all bookstores.

Digital distribution is serviced through StreetLib.
Libraries can order via Ingram and Overdrive.

The Clockmaker’s Daughter
Studio Cast Recording


Acclaimed new British musical The Clockmaker’s Daughter premiered in London in 2015 and has, to date, been nominated for 11 awards.

Now an all-star cast of leading West End performers has been assembled for The Clockmaker’s Daughter – Studio Recording, a thrilling new studio recording of Michael Webborn and Daniel Finn’s musical faerytale.

Christine Allado (Constance) is currently starring as Peggy Schuyler in Hamilton in the West End, Ramin Karimloo (Abraham) was The Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera and Love Never Dies), Fra Fee (Will Riley) was in The Ferryman, Royal Court and West End, Matthew Croke (Henry Glynn) is currently starring in the title role in Disney’s Aladdin in the West End, Lauren James Ray (Amelia) Glinda and Nessarose in the West End production of Wicked, head up the cast, with more to be announced.

The Clockmaker’s Daughter, an original story with original music, is set in the fictional Irish town of Spindlewood. Like most towns of age, Spindlewood, has its traditions. But no practice, custom or old wives’ warning is so firmly adhered to as ‘The Turning of the Key’. Every year, on the last night of winter, as the first day of spring unfolds, the townsfolk gather to take part in a strange ritual... The Clockmaker’s Daughter is a beautiful story built around themes of prejudice, discrimination, animosity and a fear of the unknown - a folk musical with a specific, yet timeless, feel.

Writers Michael Webborn and Daniel Finn met during a workshop at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in 2010. Their first full-length musical, The Clockmaker’s Daughter, premiered at the Landor Theatre in Clapham. The show went on to a sell out run and critical success. In 2016, it completed a further sell-out run at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall and was also produced by Trinity Laban. To date, it has been nominated for 11 awards

The Clockmaker’s Daughter - Studio Cast Recording is Executive Produced by David Ball Productions. The record is Produced by Joe Davison for Auburn Jam Music, and will be released by Auburn Jam Records later this year with limited edition CDs, complete with cover design by Kyle Lambert (Stranger Things) and original concept artwork by Daniel Finn.
