By Jamila Gavin

Adapted by Helen Edmundson


At Gloucester Cathedral

Tuesday 28th - Thursday 30th May 2019, 7pm


Jenny Wren Productions present a large-scale production of Jamila Gavin's epic tale of friendship and love, sacrifice and betrayal, parents and children, in 18th century Gloucestershire. 


Alexander Ashbrook is heir to the magnificent Ashbrook Estate, but he would rather study music at Gloucester Cathedral and work with the composer, Handel. Otis Gardiner, a local tinker, is - unbeknownst to the Ashbrook family - using the Ashbrook Estate for some very dark deeds. Two young boys who have grown up in a London orphanage are sent out to work for the first time. Each of them is unaware that their lives are deeply entwined, and many secrets come to light as the drama unfolds.


Coram Boy was written by the Stroud-based author Jamila Gavin and won the Whitbread Children's Book Award. Don't miss the chance to see this incredible story performed in the very place where it is set, Gloucester Cathedral, by a large community cast and choir made up of adults and children.


Recommended age: 12+

Jenny Wren Productions present

Jane Austen's


Adapted by Martin Millar and Doon MacKichan

Jenny Wren Productions delve into the dating scene of the early 19th century in this playful adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel. Emma constantly tries to pair off her unfortunate friend Harriet Smith with unsuitable men but is convinced that, for herself, the single life is the only way. Matches are made and unmade quicker than you can say "how delightful", but after all the outrageous flirting, declarations of love and heaving of bosoms, will Emma's heart escape unscathed?

As Jane Austen writes, members of her family become her characters; blushing heroines, dashing suitors and dastardly cads and many more, bringing her story of the ultimate matchmaker to mischievous life.

From the company that brought you Twelfth NightRobin Hood and last year's Jungle Book, make a date this summer with Jenny Wren Productions at a beautiful open-air venue near you.
