Ben-Hur | by Patrick Barlow
A tiny troupe and an epic story. What could go wrong?
The film features 200 camels, 2,500 horses and over 10,000 extras. This hilarious adaption of the vengeful saga includes the same grandiose scenes and heroic characters, but only four determined actors ready to take on the might of the Roman empire. They navigate through palaces, galley ships, and the Coliseum, while an onstage romance threatens to topple everything. Ben Hur is a gigantic task for these brave actors, and they promise to do their very, very best.
Directed by Andrea Boyd and featuring Henricus Gielis, Rachel Hastings, Matt Lacas and Wally MacKinnon. This show runs from July 10 to August 24.
“More quick changes and tomfoolery than an entire run of Monty Python.”
