Passing Through


Passing Through

There's been a terrible mistake! The local heavy metal club booked 'The Ace of Spades' thinking it was a Motörhead tribute band, but they got Tommy the Magician instead. Tommy's made a sharp exit and is nursing a beer and a bruised ego in the bar down the road when Alice stomps in from the rain. She's soaked, been stood up and that's it, she's had it forever with romance. What neither of them know is that some magic might just be round the corner. Or is true love just another conjuring trick, a sleight of hand?

A romantic comedy by Alistair Rutherford (BBC Radio) performed in an interactive cabaret style. 

Following sell-out performances in the UK, Italy and Switzerland Passing Through will make it's US debut in a co-production with Rapeteta Theatre Company.

Performed by Christine Cornell and Philip Kingscott

Written by Alistair Rutherford

Directed by Andy Corelli
