|Dr Livingstone, I Presume?
Miracle Theatre Co
Miracle deftly combines its own inimitable style with the wonder of Victorian Music Hall to tell the story of one man’s obsession to discover the heart of Africa and transform an entire continent singlehanded - AND of a woman left behind...
Both a hurrah to courage and endurance and a swipe at the 19th century ideals of imperialism, chauvinism and hypocrisy, this curious slice of history is served up as a magnificent melange of musicality and melodrama.
This entertaining expedition into unknown territories of comedy, excitement and musical gaiety will enthral audiences of all generations.

Riotously funny **** Fringebiscuit
Last year we experienced the highs and lows of Joe Bor’s buffoonish creation as he recounted his epic mountaineering quest to an audience who were suspended in disbelief…that such a doofus could ever be allowed to do something that dangerous.
