"BLANKFACE is a spectacular thought-provoking piece displaying racial and political themes linked closely to youth culture and knife crime. The innovative theatre production from London uses movement and artistic language to illustrate the unspoken issues in society today. The story follows a group of black youths abducted by a white supreme scientist, who aims to control and brainwash the individuals by infecting black-on-black violence, in order to regain dominance within his race. This piece is the most important work I have ever produced because of the relevance to the times we live in." - Creative Director, Maxwell Chartey

Pint of Wine Theatre Company presents Queen Of The Mist

Words and Music by Michael John LaChiusa

Pint of Wine Theatre Company's acclaimed production of Michael John LaChiusa's Queen Of The Mist comes to the Charing Cross Theatre for a strictly limited seven-week season from 15 August to 5 October 2019. Queen Of The Mist, which received its UK premiere in a sold-out run at the Jack Studio Theatre in April, is based on the astounding and outrageous true story of Anna Edson Taylor, who in 1901 on her 63rd birthday set out to be the first person to survive a trip over Niagara Falls in a barrel of her own design. With a soaring score that incorporates turn of the century themes with LaChiusa's insightful and engaging style, this award-winning musical is the story of how one woman risked death so that she could live.

The original 2011 Off-Broadway production of Queen Of The Mist won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Musical and was nominated for six Drama Desk Awards, including Outstanding Musical.

Cast: Trudi Camilleri (Ragtime, Death Takes A Holiday) as Anna Edson Taylor, with Will Arundell (Mack & Mabel), Emily Juler (Jerry Springer: The Opera), Emma Ralston (Bananaman: The Musical), Tom Blackmore (Grindr: The Opera), Conor McFarlane (Assassins) and Andrew Carter (Choir Of Man).

Creative Team: Director Dom O'Hanlon, Musical Supervisor Jordan Li-Smith, Musical Director Connor Fogel, Set & Costume Design Tara Usher, Lighting Design Bethany Gupwell, Sound Design Adrian Jeakins, Production Management Daniel Gosselin, Producer Blake Klein for Pint Of Wine Theatre Company.
