Prince Charming @ Perth Theatre

Written by Jenny Worton
Designed and directed by Ross MacKay 

Fine today … can’t get out of bed tomorrow. That was three months ago. I’ve been in these pants ever since.

It’s a lot of pressure being Prince Charming. There’s all those dragons to fight and kingdoms to save, not to mention being charming all the time. It’s enough to make anyone a little worried.

Holed up in his bed, Prince Charming is making a list of his worries – from being struck by lightning or getting stuck in quicksand to the problem of his unfortunate name. Somebody needs to come to our Prince’s rescue.

This new musical is funny, endearing and suitable for anyone who’s ever felt a bit anxious.

Age guidance: 6+

Approx running time: 1hr

‘I don’t save or shield them. It’s as bad as
I feared – they’re lost’

1840. A young governess agrees to look after two orphaned children in Bly, a seemingly idyllic country house. But shortly after her arrival, she realises that they are not alone. There are others – the ghosts of Bly’s troubled past. The Governess will risk everything to keep the children safe, even if it means giving herself up to The Others. Years later, confronted by the past she is compelled to account for what actually happened to her and the innocents under her protection.

This new adaptation of Henry James’ iconic tale, which was the original inspiration for Susan Hill’s The Woman in Black, is a masterclass in stage-craft, with captivating performances, deliciously atmospheric set and lighting design and an evocative soundtrack, starring Janet Dibley (Doctors, EastEnders, The Two of Us) and Maggie McCarthy (Dancing on the Edge, Call the Midwife).

Lost at Sea @ Perth Theatre

‘The untold war o’ man versus the elements. Oh, I’ll tell it to ye. The tale o the fishermen fightin the ocean. Yer in for a rough ride.’

A storm is brewing in a small fishing village. A young woman returns home, searching for answers about her father’s death. But as she begins to weave together the strands of her past, a mysterious force unravels family secrets.

Lost at Sea journeys through a labyrinth of myth and memory in an epic tale spanning forty years of the fishing industry. Featuring the voices of fishermen and their families in their own words – with music, songs and Scots language – it is the lyrical and powerfully evocative story of a North-East fishing family. 

Inspired by the loss of playwright Morna Young’s fisherman father, Lost at Sea is a personal tribute to the fishing communities of Scotland.

Suitable for ages 12+

A Regular Little Houdini -  Perth Festival Of The Arts @ Perth Theatre

A lowly dockworker’s son idolises his hero, Harry Houdini, and commits himself to a life of magic, but the harsh reality of working class life in Edwardian Britain gets in the way. With a head full of magic, our boy witnesses the most terrifying events of British industrial history. His personal journey collides with the world’s greatest showman himself, changing his life and the future of his community. How can you follow your dreams in a world where poverty weighs you down like mud? A beautiful one-man play about hope and magic!

Llewelyn-Williams commands the audience’s attention; it is the mesmerising qualities of his story-telling voice, which shackles us to his web of tales”.  Wales Arts Review

Winner of The Encore Producer’s Award, Artistic Excellence Award, and Best Performance by an Actor Award at The Hollywood Fringe Festival. 

This special performance is followed by an audience Q&A with the writer and actor Daniel Llewelyn-Williams.
