ANNA & THE KING OF SIAM


In a spellbinding solo performance, Bruce (in the role of Anna’s son, Louis Leonowens) tells the world-reknowned - and true - story of an English governess and the King of Siam. The glittering backdrop of the temples and palaces of Bangkok sets the scene for a Victorian gentlewoman, who steps from a sheltered English life into a dazzling Siamese royal court of slaves, harems, and the whims of a complex and fascinating king, torn between tradition and the modern world.


WHAT THE DICKENS!


The sounds, smells, sights and stories of Victorian London are brought vividly to life as Bruce Morrison recreates the world-famous and best-loved characters of Charles Dickens’ cherished and treasured writings, OLIVER TWIST, DAVID COPPERFIELD, A CHRISTMAS CAROL and more, recalling Dickens renowned dramatic onstage readings, with which he toured both Britain and America to enormous acclaim.


LETTERATI – Love, Letters, Life & Laughter


Bruce presents a heart warming, humorous and charming solo performance, exploring 5 centuries of Love, Life and Laughter through the wit and wisdom of Love Letters and their writers – in the forgotten art and craft of correspondence, from the pens of famous kings, queens, lovers, actors and adventurers!


MUTINY!


Based on the original logbook, letters and diaries of Capt. William Bligh, Bruce dramatises the infamous Mutiny On The Bounty, as Fletcher Christian and the mutineers set Capt. Bligh and 18 crew members adrift in the ship's open launch. Bligh safely completed an historical and terrifying 4,000 mile voyage from Tofua in the South Pacific, past the dangers of the Great Barrier Reef, through the Endeavour Straights, and  to the safety of Timor in Indonesia, thus achieving one of the greatest feats of navigation known to man!

Bruce re-lives the glamour and excitement of the early days of ocean travel (and the first days of luxury world cruising) in a witty, light-hearted and often uproarious tribute to the pukka Sahibs and Memsahibs, British Officers and Gentlemen who headed out East to take the famous ‘Passage To India’. With letters, poetry, laughter and songs from Coward to Kipling.
