Musicals

Bright and Brave: a new musical

It is England, 1872, and a sense of longing has filled the halls of Eton College. Under the guidance of their controversially progressive tutor, best friends Regy and Chat have found themselves enraptured in what can only be the pure innocence of love. However, with the introduction of a new headmaster and the beginning of their adult lives around the corner, how their relationship will grow is uncertain. Inspired by their real journals, poems, and letters, Bright and Brave follows Regy and Chat through their lives as they struggle with societal pressures, grapple with who they are, and cope with what it means to love.
