Hyland’s back as Fagin at Eastbourne’s Under Ground Theatre

Fagin's Last Hour
Fagin's Last Hour

HE THRILLED Eastbourne in 2011 with a remarkable stage performance based on the work of Charles Dickens; now he’s set to do it again in 2012.

Last time, the inspiration for actor/writer James Hyland was A Christmas Carol – which he presented at the Under Ground Theatre “As told by Jacob Marley (deceased)”.

This time, he’s back at the Under Ground on October 6 (7.30pm) – recreating the characters from Oliver Twist in Fagin’s Last Hour.

We meet Fagin in his cell awaiting execution, recalling the events that have brought him to this end.

In turn, we are confronted by an incorruptible Oliver, a nimble Dodger, a warm-hearted Nancy, a terrifying Sikes, and the rest, all seen through Fagin’s eyes - as Hyland pulls off a stunning physical and vocal performance.

Tickets cost £10, buy at any UGT event or on the door, online at www.undergroundtheatre.org.uk , via Oxboffice on 0845 680 1926, or at Eastbourne Tourist Information.
