FAGIN’S LAST HOUR

Some of you will have seen the  entertaining but unsettling music video DISAPPOINT YOU (Jargon V.A. ft Tinie Tempah) directed by Ian Pons Jewell and starring the talented James Hyland. If not check it out here:

James Hyland, as well as being an actor is also a writer/ producer and currently starring in a theatrical version of his solo drama Fagin’s Last Hour. 

Produced by award-winning production company, Brother Wolf, in association with Harrogate Theatre, Fagin’s Last Hour has been described as “truly astonishing” (The Courier) and “powerful and highly accomplished” (The Stage). This new adaptation of Oliver Twist has received official recognition from Her Majesty The Queen as part of Charles Dickens’ Bicentenary Celebrations, alongside Hyland’s own recent award for Best Performer in Theatre (Fringe Report Awards 2012) for A Christmas Carol – As told by Jacob Marley (deceased) and its nomination for The London Theatre Award (London Awards for Art and Performance 2012). This nomination was received in conjunction with fellow nominees the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Royal National Theatre, and the Old Vic.
