A NEW MUSICAL ABOUT THOMAS BECKET'S LIFE AND LEGEND
by Emmeline Winterbotham, music Vahan Salorian
'London's Turbulent Son' is a thrilling modern musical interpretation of the dramatic life of former Patron Saint of London, Thomas Becket, inspired by an historic guild Pageant of 1519. Charting Thomas's story from the mythical meeting of his parents in the Middle East and early life on London's Cheapside, to his meteoric rise to King's right hand man, we follow his struggle between ambition, friendship and conscience to its tragic climax in the most shocking murder of the Middle Ages.
'London's Turbulent Son' is performed with great energy and heart by a talented professional cast and live band, members of the City of London community and local schools. Suitable for a family audience. Audience are welcome to add a touch of Tudor dress.
