        Elgar & Alice         Mr Punch         My Son Will



Elgar & Alice

Synopsis:
Elgar, cyclist, golfer, chemist, incorrigible joker and England's best-loved composer, comes to life in this witty and poignant exploration of the tense relationships that brought us his music. How did the son of a Worcester piano-tuner come to marry the daughter of a major-general? How did he cope with her longing for fashionable society? How did she respond to his hankering after a country life? Why did she sacrifice her own ambitions? What was the 'enigma' in his Enigma Variations? And who was the other Alice?

Notes:
Edward Elgar was born on 2nd June 1857. This play is part of the 150th Anniversary celebrations
