London’s Turbulent Son – a musical
As part of the Becket Pageant for London
‘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. Written and Directed by Emmeline Winterbotham with Music by Vahan Salorian, ‘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. Audiences are welcome to add a touch of Tudor dress but not essential.
