A NEW BRITISH MUSICAL BY SIMON SPENCER

Our story follows the journey of two sisters – Peggy and Janet – in their search for happiness. Fighting against their mother’s dysfunctional behaviour, they are forced apart to pursue lives away from their home in Wales.
Peggy sings. However, she is never propelled by a drive to become famous but instead to break unhealthy childhood patterns, find independence and build the loving family she always wanted. Janet struggles with her own demons, striving for the courage and support to live a truer and more honest life.

Set against the background of a century in flux, when the sisters reconnect, they are gradually empowered to positively transform their lives

With a multi award-winning creative team, Are You As Nervous As I Am? is written by Simon Spencer, with music by Leighton James House and lyrics by Shaun McKenna.

Don’t miss the World Premiere of this new British Musical at Greenwich Theatre this October

Do you ever want to run away from it all?

Dan and Boff did exactly that: they ran a series of routes from the centre of the city in which they found themselves, to the top of the peak overlooking that city. But what are we really running from?

In story and in song, These Hills Are Ours is the story of what they found out on those journeys. It’s about escaping it all by running to wild places. Escaping the city, escaping your past, escaping the restrictions of upbringing or class or politics. It’s a celebration of wild places and our freedom to roam them.

Daniel Bye’s award-winning, internationally touring theatre is always engaging, thought-provoking and entertaining. Boff Whalley, best-known as a founder member of Chumbawamba, writes heartfelt, catchy folk songs. This, their first theatre piece together, sees them moving into their most personal material yet. It’s a not-to-be-missed collaboration between two of Britain’s most celebrated artists in their own fields.

Greenwich Theatre is one of London’s most beloved Off-West End theatres, holding a programme of drama, music, theatre, family shows, and pantomime all year round.

The theatre has a national reputation of encouraging the work of young and exciting theatre companies, consistently providing a debut stage for new writing that often transfers around the country, returns to the West End, and then makes it way across the world.

Although the Greenwich Theatre has its groundings in supporting emerging talent, the site on which the current building stands is rich with a history that reaches back many years before the opening of the present-day venue in 1969. At the beginning of the 19th century, the theatre was associated with Richardson’s travelling theatre - a fairground theatre which presented twenty-five minute shows in several genres. The shows became so popular that some records account for over 10,000 people attending the event. The show was eventually closed due to the enormous amount of attendees, who exhibited drunkenness and caused public nuisance. However, the theatre continued to celebrate its heritage, with Eleanor Bufton reciting a poem including lines concerning Richardson’s show on her first night as the manager of the Greenwich Theatre.

In recent times, the theatre is at the forefront of developing the UK’s family theatre scene, and celebrates the genre by producing the annual Greenwich Children’s Theatre Festival, and presenting one of the country’s most acclaimed traditional pantomimes. It also developed a partnership with Sell a Door Theatre Company who presented a re-run of The Who’s popular musical, Tommy, which was performed at the venue in 2015, in its first performance in over 20 years.
