Thanks to the kind permission of the Catherine Cookson Estate, Entertainment Unlimited is delighted to bring you this new musical adaptation of The Cinder Path. This powerful tale is set in rural Northumberland in the lead up to the First World War. We follow the story of Charlie MacFell and his relationship with a cruel and domineering father, his stormy marriage and a struggle to keep a dark secret.
Catherine Cookson’s writing brings to life raw emotion, love, betrayal and resolution as Charlie finally settles old scores and finds true love. This is the first time that any of Cookson’s novels have been set with music and the original score by Mike Redway adds another dimension to the drama of one man’s struggle with destiny.
Produced and Directed by Leah Bell. Adapted for the stage by Paul Dunn. Featuring original music by Mike Redway.
On a limited preview tour in venues across the North East of England.
Appearing at The Royalty Theatre, Sunderland: 8th June 2019 at 7.30pm & Sunday 9th June 2019 at 3pm.
