IGS staff member Paul Turner was recently due to appear as a chorus member in the new amateur theatre production of Feargus the Musical, a show based on the life of 19th century radical Nottingham politician Feargus O’Connor. However, Paul was thrust into the main role of Feargus when the original actor fell ill only days before the production was due on stage. Paul is pictured centre stage in the top hat.
The musical was written by local Nottingham historian and musician Brian Lund and featured a 25 strong cast with 19 new songs. Any profits from the show will be going to two local charities.
