Bonny & Read a New Musical

written by Claire Novello

composition by Frederick Appleby

produced by Novanda Productions

Based on the trials of Captain Rackham and his pirate crew in Jamaica in 1720, history meets myth in this real life story of the remarkable, cross-dressing women pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read, and their fateful encounter with the infamous Jack Rackham, also known as Calico Jack.

Bonny & Read depicts the circumstances that led these two women to disguise themselves as men, go out to sea, and join the notoriously male-dominated world of piracy.

This epic voyage of twists and turns is a story of exceptional female bravery, adventure, and survival against all odds. Bonny & Read is a new musical play by Claire Novello, with music composed by Frederick Appleby, and directed by award-winning director Kenneth Michaels.

Holst: The Music In The Spheres

Holst: The Music In The Spheres Socially Distanced Performance

by Ross McGregor

produced by Arrows & Traps Theatre

Born into a family of musicians, England's greatest modern composer, Gustav Holst, began his career as a humble music teacher, struggling to make ends meet.

After a crippling childhood illness robs him of his vision and his ability to hold musical instruments, he embarks on one final desperate effort to write the great work that will define him and classical music forever: The Planets Suite.

Music in the Spheres tells the story of the man behind the music, as he challenges an elitist industry that sees no space in it for people like him. A courageous story of struggle, discovery and the need to be understood.

Richard II

by William Shakespeare

produced by We Are Animate

Mock not flesh and blood with solemn reverence. Throw away tradition, form, and ceremonious duty.

Amidst worldwide political turbulence, England faces societal crisis and open rebellion. Living a life of luxury within the crumbling Palace of Westminster, King Richard is increasingly unwilling to face the calamity his failing government has created. As the façade of power begins to dissolve around him, the dramatic downfall of an extraordinary individual begins; an individual who is in equal measures both vivaciously captivating, and excruciatingly cruel.

We Are Animate are proud to present this new version of one of Shakespeare's most subversive plays. In our own age of unprecedented political turmoil, this production explores the power and strength of femininity, and questions what traits are expected, and respected, in a leader.

We Are Animate have been creating ground-breaking theatre since 2012. Through a unique blend of high-octane performance, innovative choreography and minimalist aesthetics, they have created Red Bull theatre for the Netflix generation. Previous productions include Hunter & Jonny, Roughs, Love Lab and Bitesize Chekhov.
