Call Centre Fairytale, our new musical play, which mixes the grey soulless realism of the call centre with the razzle-dazzle fantasy world of Strictly, swung in to action on Friday July 27th at Nottingham Playhouse, as part of Write Pride.
A twenty minute extract from this new work, which explores LGBT themes and workplace bullying, was performed in the Neville Studio at Nottingham Playhouse as part of Write Pride. Afterwards, we took part in a great question and answer session with the audience. We even got to watch the other performers and enjoy their brilliant work.
We’re delighted that Call Centre Fairytale was chosen to be part of this fabulous event, and welcome actors Andrea Crewe, Aimee Berwick, Sarah Carleton and Kieran Hardcastle to Arletty Central!
We started eagerly developing the script with these lovely actors the weekend before Write Pride. They’ve given some fascinating insights in to the plot and characters – and they’re wonderful singers too! Thanks to the scratch cast, and Hayley, Tom, Katie and James, who worked on this fantastic event.

Please note, we are unable to read unsolicited scripts. This is a very small company, with most administrative roles covered by two people, so we’re sorry, but it isn’t possible to respond to work sent on the off-chance. We currently have projects in the pipeline.
