Chesterton Comes Alive at The Courtyard this February!

Award winning Box Tale Soup present their stunning new production, Manalive!

Saturday 6th February, 8pm at The Courtyard Theatre.

★★★★“GK Chesterton’s tale is brought to vibrant and cheerfully eccentric life with

Box Tale Soup’s characteristic ingenuity.” The Stage

All is gold that glitters…

Following great success from their last two shows at The Courtyard Theatre last year, award winning company Box Tale Soup return with their latest work, Manalive! The new show tells the story of Beacon House, a broken-down boarding establishment, and its brooding tenants. When an exciting new guest arrives everyone is uplifted by his infectious charm and energy… but the visitor may not be as innocent as he seems.

Adapted from the novel by G.K. Chesterton, Manalive! features just two performers alongside a cast of Box Tale Soup’s signature handmade puppets, including the captivating life-size Mr. Smith! It features a soundtrack created and recorded especially for the show .

Performers Noel and Antonia have appeared in shows such as Doctor Who, HBO’s Game of Thrones, BBC’s The Hour and CBBC’s Mission 2110, and are now very excited to present their new production at The Courtyard Theatre.

Tickets are £10 & £8 (Concession) – Group discount available
