The Spread Eagle Theatre has announced its 2014 programme, which opens next month with “a romping, stonking folk musical”, called Babylon.
This show, produced by The Flanagan Collective, runs on just three nights, Tuesday to Thursday, February 4-6. Tickets for the show are just £10.
“Babylon is a show about kings and queens and revolutions. It’s about the things we love, the things we should hold tighter to every day.
“It’s a show full of folk music, of drinking and dancing, of singing with arms wrapped around strangers shoulders. Came raise a glass with us,” says the theatre’s blurb.
The Flanagan Collective was set up in 2010 by Alexander Wright (co-artistic director of Belt Up Theatre) and has produced two critically acclaimed musicals – Some Small Love Story and Beulah – and produced two critically acclaimed solo shows – Githa and The Bridge That Tom Built. They run the unique and boutique Little Festival Of Everything as well as programming work across pubs and non-performances spaces. In 2012 they were nominated for an Emerging Company Total Theatre Award.
Babylon was originally developed with The Fauconberg Arms, Derby Theatre and Greenwich Theatre across 2013.
