OLD BONES, by Jen McGregor, is the debut production of Third Pier Theatre. Originally playing to sold out crowds at the Prague Fringe and Buxton Fringe, OLD BONES has continued to tour the UK entertaining audiences of all ages, performing in Fringe theatres, drama schools, and backroom live venues.
OLD BONES tells the story of James Napier; a gambler, drinker, adventurer, and lothario who, sick of living in the shadow of his adored and revered brother, calls upon infernal forces to do what no man has done before.
And 400 years later, he's still paying the price...
A story of love, loss, revenge, and forgiveness. This interactive one-man show has received glowing praise from critics and audiences alike.
an intriguing and intelligent play, Hird's personable performance belies an undertone of creeping horror. The last few minutes will stick long in my memory.
I saw OLD BONES last year and loved it, so when it came back this year I had to see it again, and what do you know, it's even better than I remembered it.
The final scene is one of the best moments I have seen in solo theatre.
