Cox & Box - Mrs Bouncer's Legacy

Cox & Box : By Sir Arthur Sullivan and F.C. Burnand. 1866. Cox is an apprentice hatter who works by day, and Box, a printer who works by night. Under the swift broom of landlady Mrs Bouncer, the two unknowingly share the same room. . .but that's not all they have in common. Tempers flare and it's not long before the guns come out. Sir Arthur Sullivan's one act comic opera is reinvented with a brand new second act.
Boks & Cocks By Chris Monks and Richard Atkinson. 2016. A recently elected government has repatriated all migrant workers. Twin sisters Urszula and Krystyna are secretly sharing a room in a rundown B&B and it's only a matter of time before their unscrupulous landlord Bob Narks finds out. But further outrageous revelations (and livestock) are set to come out of the woodwork. A musical play about deception, international relations and chickens.
