A largescale Community adaptation of Ben Hur. Involving a cast of 120 on the Theatre Royal Baths main stage. We worked for a year with an open access group of Baths budding thespians. Anyone could join as long as they wern’t professional. Filmed for a BBC Imagine documentary with Alan Yentob  the results were truly epic. Winning much critical acclaim including being named This Is Baths  play of the year.

Venue *****  “a beautifully staged triumph of the power of collective human endeavour”

Whats On Stage ***** “Director Lee Lyford and associate director Sita Calvert – Ennals have done an incredible job… an exciting , groundbreaking piece of theatre.”
