Jenny Wren Productions, in partnership with Gloucester Cathedral, is auditioning for a community cast for its epic production that will take place in May 2019.
Coram Boy is a gothic drama novel and an amazing piece of historical fiction based in the eighteenth century in both London and Gloucester. Stroud-based author Jamila Gavin manages to cleverly interweave three stories together to tell a story of love, friendship and betrayal.
