WESTMINSTER TOUR

December 2015

ABOUT THE SHOW

It’s Christmas Eve in 2015 ... and 1990 ... and 1968, 1914 and 1818. Christmas spirit transcends the ages as ordinary people share five extraordinary moments throughout history.

 

In 2015, while Harry is stationed on a military base, his wife Bella has a special Christmas surprise to share over Skype - thanks to a small team of computer scientists at CERN in Geneva, who test-run what we now know as the Internet on Christmas Day in 1990. In 1968, the Apollo 8 Lunar Mission makes contact with earth, as those back on the home planet receive a powerful Christmas message from the moon’s orbit. Christmas cheer transcends boundaries again in 1914, when English soldiers cross enemy lines to make new friends at the Front. And in the small Austrian village of Obendorf, an accident with the church’s organ before Midnight Mass in 1818 leads to the premiere of a very recognizable carol.

 

Burn Bright Theatre have been commissioned to create All Is Bright as an original pop-up play for residents in sheltered accommodation in Westminster. The production has toured non-theatre spaces across the borough, creating access to theatre for those who may not be able to access traditional seasonal performances across London.

With thanks to AGE UK WESTMINSTER, WESTMINSTER CITY COUNCIL WARD and MAROUSH RESTAURANT.

ALL IS 

BRIGHT
