The award winning play Coram Boy by Helen Edmundson, adapted from Jamilia Gavin’s novel. A joint production between Trinity School’s Drama Department and the Mitre Players.
Set against a backdrop of the 18th century and the foundation of ‘The Coram Hospital for Deserted Children’, the play follows two orphans caught up in a notorious scam and fighting for their lives.
Rich in social history, set primarily in two cities and underscored by Handel’s Messiah, the play is Dickensian in scope and rich in character roles and covers a period of approximately 10 years from 1742.
Challenging scenes for the cast, period costumes & music and creative staging will bring the episodic text to life. (Think Nicholas Nickleby!)
