English Eccentrics

Join two of our  leading actors, James Bolam and Susan Jameson, in our delightful celebration of English Eccentrics.

Discover colourful and remarkable characters who have enlivened and entertained us through the ages, and whose originality and strength of character stands out now more than ever in an age of mass-market conformity.

We bring you Joshua Norton, self-proclaimed Emperor of the United States of America; Hermione Gingold, whose autobiography, The World is Square, more than lives up to its title;  William Buckland, who ate anything and everything from a bluebottle to the heart of King Louis XIV; and many equally odd and endearing characters.

More familiar names include Lewis Carroll, Dr. Samuel Johnson, Sir Thomas Beecham, Lord Byron, Beau Brummell, Mrs Malaprop, and Oscar Wilde. All presented with accompanying music from Clive Conway on flute and Christine Croshaw, who devised the production, on piano.
