WHAT’S ON IN 2024:

 

‘Bright and lively but very moving’ … ‘lovely, interweaving harmonies …’  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️   ‘Entertaining, profoundly moving and thought-provoking’ … ‘Superb … My standout show of the Fringe’
After a great reception at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe, MRS PACK is back! Our musical about a real woman who turned the Stuart royal court upside-down comes to the CAMDEN FRINGE this summer — click here for details and tickets.

We were delighted that a video of the  Fringe production was officially selected in the Montreal Women Film Festival — you can see the film on Scenesaver or Three Chairs and a Hat’s YouTube channel 🎬

More good movie news, as two of our digital productions won semi-final places in the Paris Lady MovieMakers Film FestivalShakespeare (she/her), our major video project created by Wayne T Brown, for best TV/Web Pilot, and animated musical Lady M, based on the bard’s most famously feisty woman, for best Short Animation 🎬

‘Fantastically clever …’ ‘snappy, inherently human’ … ‘Sharp and witty’ … ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 
Some of the lovely reviewer comments about VERITY and DEXTER, two musicals about one disastrous wedding, which played at the 2023 Edinburgh Fringe and can be seen in the video version on Scenesaver and Three Chairs and a Hat’s YouTube channel. Both shows made the semi-finals of the Edinburgh Film Awards for Winter 2024 — congratulations to all the team 🎬

Plans are underway to bring VERITY and DEXTER to the Oxford stage — watch this space…

Great news that our animation PETER: The Homecoming won Best Animation at the Berlin Women Cinema Festival 2024. You can see this first episode of our musical about Peter the Great’s astonishing life on Scenesaver or YouTube 🎬
