Fanny & Stella at NAMT - October 2021

Eamonn and SEVAN's 'f*cking fabulous' new musical Fanny & Stella has been selected from over 250 new musicals to be featured in the 33rd Annual Festival of New Musicals, hosted by the National Alliance for Musical Theatre in New York in October.

Frederick Park and Ernest Boulton, unremarkable middle-class boys, flee their suburban upbringing to live as Fanny & Stella in 1870s London – a heady world of drag, music hall, sex and more sex. A run-in with the law casts them in the sensational show-trial of the ‘He-She Ladies’. Dominating the press and scandalizing the nation, the ordeal tests their extraordinary friendship and reveals the deep corruption of an empire fighting to remain respectable.

Twelfth Night & Henry V at Shakespeare's Rose Theatre, York

'Music is always present in this production; 

a fantastic band is on stage to provide a musical accent to a comedic moment, or a fully fledged song and dance. Composer Eamonn O'Dwyer outdoes himself with a perfectly pitched score'

Broadway World

'This is one of the best productions of Twelfth Night I've seen... and easily the funniest'

'Instant sunshine!'

'The show flows seamlessly... spanning many different eras of conflict, with poignant composition by Eamonn O'Dwyer

Arts York

'Eamonn O'Dwyer's music is constantly apt'

York Press

''The director appreciates the dark side of nationalism; scenes in which the audience are encouraged to chant 'In-ger-lund' alongside the soldiers are deliberately discomfiting. A compelling production'

'O'Dwyer's music helps to propel the action at a

brisk lick, its lively melodies tipping a cheeky wink

to Prokoviev and Sondheim' 

The Times

 

'Toe-tapping songs by Eamonn O'Dwyer are performed as well as any West End production'      Time Out

Not just a winner, it's a masterpiece'

Mrs Beeton Says...

music & lyrics by Eamonn O'Dwyer

book by Helen Watts

 

Mrs Beeton Says… examines the life and legacy

of an extraordinary woman: a spirited journalist,

a tireless entrepreneur, and if not a perfect

homemaker, then certainly a queen of organisation. 

In a world where a woman could not vote, own a house, nor even ride a bicycle, Mrs Beeton’s book gave the women of England something they desperately wanted: a bit of control.  Far more than just a cookbook, it was a manual for life; and as the wheels of British industry span faster than ever before, it became a lifeline for every maid and wife and mother trying to hold her ground in an ever-changing age.

'A witty, edgy score' - The Fine Times Recorder
