PAGES: PROMISED LAND
On from 21 Oct 2009 till 07 Nov 2009
Union Theatre
by Joe Fredericks, Alex Constantine, Rachel Welch, Ali Muriel and Hannah Patterson
Genre(s): New Writing

About: PAGES: PROMISED LAND

Four writers, three directors, two composers and a cast of fifteen collaborate to tell the story of one man and his remarkable journey through four very different experiences.
Where will his journey take him? Out of the mundane routine of his existence? Where will the journey take us?
PAGES is an exciting new concept – an annual theatre production which experiments with, and breaks down the barriers between, musical theatre and spoken drama. Pages: Promised Land is the second in the series, following on from the sell-out run of last year at the Pacific Playhouse.
This innovative production represents the work of an eclectic mix of some of the hottest emerging theatrical talent around.

Creative team:
Concept Directed by – Joe Fredericks
Directors – Emily Agnew and Hannah Eidinow
Written by Alex Constantine, Rachel Welch, Ali Muriel and Hannah Patterson
With additional material and songs by Joe Fredericks & musical arrangements/direction by Sean Green
Produced by Holly Reiss for MokitaGrit Productions

MokitaGrit Productions has enjoyed a prolific first 18 months producing a staggering variety of work at venues all around the country. The work ranged from a Christmas family musical, to a Sanskrit masterpiece, both of which enjoyed critical acclaim and sell-out runs at two premier Off-West End venues.

Reviews

Not just two hours of darn good theatre…...IT'S A WORK OF GENIUS *****

THOUGHT PROVOKING…. INNOVATIVE

MokitaGrit Productions have succeeded in tying these elements together to bring something new and exciting to the international theatre scene….with a unique blend of theatre and musical theatre which DEFIES NARROW INTERPRETATION

ORIGINAL and UNIQUE, and that makes it very EXCITING

The stories are well-crafted and blend together successfully, which is a credit to the vision and production talent of Joe Fredericks, the Concept Director and particularly talented composer who conceived of this piece. His ability to bring together the work of so many people and weave it seamlessly together is admirable.

When the moments of release come, they are LITERALLY TOUCHING.

The song are PERFORMED FLAWLESSLY by the STRONG CAST members, all able to use their voices with versatility and pizzazz.

With no vocal coach on the production list, it is a heartening testament to musical theatre training and the sharp ears of casting director Ellie Collyer-Bristow.
