Jenny Wren Productions return to the Everyman Studio Theatre with Funny Boy, a new play developed from last year’s The Pygmalion Project.
Set in 1969, in the stable of a large country house, this is a modern take on an old story about status, society and success. Mother and son sneak separately to the stable for a secret cigarette. The stable is home to a promising young racehorse, cared for by two women who love and cherish him as the mother loves and cherishes the son. Many hopes lie on the son and the horse, but can they be fulfilled? Is success dependent on fame and breeding?
“I'm the greatest star, I am, by far, but no one knows it.”

THE SINGULAR LIFE OF ALBERT NOBBS
By Simone Benmussa, translated by Barbara Wright
A strange life his was, and mysterious – mysterious, because when he died, we learnt that Albert was a woman.
1860s Dublin. Albert Nobbs is an apparently unassuming and exemplary waiter in a large hotel. However, he is harbouring a secret that remains largely undiscovered until his death: he is actually a woman, posing as a man in order to obtain work and avoid destitution. But this leads to destitution of a more personal kind, as ‘Albert’ can only stumble through life, wondering ‘what if…?’ until a chance encounter with a fellow ‘perhapser’ leaves ‘him’ clinging to unrealistic dreams of domestic happiness.

Around the World in 80 Days

By Mark Brown, adapted from Jules Verne

“I shall bet twenty thousand pounds… that I will make the tour of the world in eighty days or less. That is, in nineteen hundred and twenty hours, or one hundred and fifteen thousand two hundred minutes.”

The punctual and particular Phileas Fogg and his faithful manservant Passepartout race against the clock with the incompetent Detective Fix hot on their heels. Typhoons, runaway trains and a terrifying Apache tribe are amongst the tribulations they encounter as they travel to exotic and far-flung corners of the world – Suez, Singapore and San Francisco to name but a few.

Join Jenny Wren Productions on their slightly more local journey as they tour around the open-air venues of Gloucestershire in a few less than 80 days. 5 actors play 39 characters in this fun-packed, fast-paced, family-friendly adventure from the company that brought you The Three Musketeers and A Child in the Forest.
