“A brilliant production with a festive feel”
“Proof that miracles do happen at Christmas”
The story of how Clarence Odbody, Angel Second Class, earned his wings is a familiar one. But even an angel must learn their trade, and that’s a lesser known tale.
Join Clarence in his angelic education, as his celestial colleagues teach him the ropes, offer him advice and regale him with their own stories of how they gained their flying licences. But will he be ready when the call finally comes?
Every Time a Bell Rings is a festive collection of heart-warming, emotional and comical stories inspired by the diverse Bedford community.
Using a mixture of live and pre-recorded performances, including interviews and stories, all collected and reworked in Mangled Yarn's own raucous style - so expect lots of music, laughs and silliness thrown into the mix - the greatest gift we can give you this Christmas.
Alongside a live, socially distanced audience, Every Time a Bell Rings will also be available to Live Stream or Download at a later date, so even if you can’t join us live in person for whatever reason, we can still reach out to you… it turns out it IS a wonderful life.
And remember, every time a bell rings an angel gets its wings!
Mangled Yarn’s first production was in 2019 at the The Warren: Blockhouse at the incredible Brighton Fringe. We thought Mary Shelly’s FRANKENSTEIN had to be the most inappropriate classic text to turn into a family friendly spectacular... thus Frankenstein the Pantomime was born.
Five incredible actor musicians lovingly unstitched the gothic drama, stuffed it full of panto dames, live music, disco parodies and whatever else they could find, and put it back together again! Take a look at how Mangled Yarn brings an old tale to life!
