This is the world premiere of a new digital comedy by Yasmeen Khan and Henry Filloux-Bennett starring Stephen Fry, Matthew Kelly and Sara Crowe.
Inspired by the resilience of communities and especially community theatres in the face of the Covid-19 cancellations, it tells the story of a fight to save one such cherished arts centre from permanent closure with a fundraising production of ‘Wizard’, inspired by but (for rights purposes) NOT based on ‘The Wizard of Oz’.
This digital production has a wonderful cast. In addition to Stephen Fry as Narrator, Sara Crowe, and Matthew Kelly, it also features Nicole Evans, Shobna Gulati, Sarah Hadland, Merch Husey, Emma McDonald, and Penny Ryder.
