Raising eyebrows for the right reasons

27 November 2008

Eyebrow Productions has triumphed with a production of Me and My Girl performed at the London Palladium on Sunday 26 October 2008 to rave reviews – despite its cast having had only 48 hours to rehearse the show.

Eyebrow Productions, the company bringing together Bristol alumni Sheara Abrahams (BA 2003), Esther Biddle (BA 2002) and Leigh Thompson (BA 2000) has triumphed with a production of Me and My Girlperformed at the London Palladium on Sunday 26 October 2008 to rave reviews – despite its cast having had only 48 hours to rehearse the show.

Showtime Challenge 3 is just the latest in a series of ambitious productions aimed at raising money for worthy causes, this time for the bone marrow charity Anthony Nolan Trust. It was supported by a range of stars including Les Dennis, Robert Lindsay, Joanna Lumley and Dame Judi Dench.

Stephen Fry, who revised the book of Me and My Girl in 1984, summed up the attempt in his own inimitable way when he said the following: ‘Oh how wildly deranged you are even to try…You wild, wonderful, fond and foolish people, the very best of luck to you.’

Not content with the challenge of producing classic musicals in only 48 hours, Eyebrow has just launched Writetime in a bid to promote new writing. Eyebrow invites anyone to send in new scripts or scores, as well as ideas for short films. Every three months

Eyebrow will showcase new work in various venues around London. Visit  for more information.
