Coram Boy

Wednesday 7 - Saturday 10 August 2019

Albert Hall - Tickets: £22.50 - £10


Adapted by Helen Edmundson
Based on the novel by Jamila Gavin

In 1739 Thomas Coram established his Foundling Hospital, a home for unwanted children. Into this world fall Aaron and his best friend Toby, one the unknowing heir to a vast fortune and the other rescued from an African slave ship.
Aaron’s gift for music exposes both boys to the dark underbelly of Georgian society. Soon they are on a dangerous journey to unravel their pasts and forge their destinies.

Based on Jamila Gavin’s Whitbread Children’s Book of the Year Award-winning novel, Coram Boy is a gripping family saga that exposes an era blighted by slavery and the ill-treatment of children.

Nottingham’s beautiful Albert Hall, with its iconic Binns Organ, provides the perfect backdrop to Coram Boy’s soaring choral score. Two professional actors, with over 70 community performers, will bring to life this epic tale of heartbreak and redemption.

Artistic Director Adam Penford, following his highly acclaimed production of The Madness of George III, directs this tale of the power of music and the unbreakable bond of parent-child love.
