Current production 

“My Boy Danny” is the new play by award-winning West-End Writer, Actor and Director Alfie James. Every night Ange stands by the window looking out with the hope to see her son one last time looking up at her from across the road. Instead every night for the past eleven months there’s been a shadow standing there in his place. Desperate for answers, Ange lets the shadow in.

 

Rory is just a regular awkward teenage boy. Or at least he was until that night when it all went wrong. Desperate to tell his story and to reach out to a woman he’d never met but knew so much about.

 

This is a special audio performance of the play recorded raw over zoom during the Covid:19 Virus lockdown by the cast.

THE LITTLE MATCH GIRL

BY HANS CHRISTIAN-ANDERSEN

ADAPTED BY ALFIE JAMES

 

“A poignant and poetic telling of a classic tale performed beautifully by a wonderful cast.”

 

It is Christmas Eve in Victorian London. People clutch hold of their coats rushing about in the snow doing their Christmas shopping. No one notices the poor little girl desperately trying to sell her match sticks for her father. No one notices the street children whom live under their noses striving to get by. Join the Little Match Girl, Just Tom, Ratty and Mrs Mouse as they tell their adaptation of the classic short story by Hans Christian-Andersen and how they came to meet a young boy from the upper class learn about the life of the working class while they help him find his way home for Christmas.

 

Written and directed by award-winning writer Alfie James and performed as part of the Story Box Community Theatre Project in London. This is a magical and poignant tale which reminds us of the true meaning of Christmas. We were due to perform this play at The Redbridge Drama Centre but were forced to cancel due to Covid:19. Instead, we have created this rather special audio performance via Zoom from our own living rooms.

 

Supported by The Arts Council, England, and The Redbridge Arts Fund.
