Two warring houses. One ancient grudge. A whole lot of shoes.
Can the houses of Montashoe and Keypulet be united by a pair of star-crossed lovers? Journey to Victorian London where Monty Montashoe and Keeleigh Keypulet, two young inventors bursting with ambition, strive to break free from their humdrum lives and follow their dreams all the way to the 50th annual ‘Invention Convention’!
Sponsored by Timpson Ltd. themselves, Timpson: The Musical premiered at The Other Palace, London in 2018 before heading up to the one and only Edinburgh Fringe for a month. Somehow we managed to return home with The Stage Edinburgh Award, receive a nomination for the BroadwayWorld Best Musical Award, nab a feature in The Guardian’s ‘best shows at the Edinburgh Festival 2018’ and have our show described by the BBC as “bonkers but brilliant!”. Timpson: The Musical also made it onto both Time Out and The Telegraph’s lists of the top 10 weirdest shows at the Fringe that year!
Following our Edinburgh run, we toured the production to venues across the UK, namely: The King’s Head, London; The Old Joint Stock, Birmingham; The Warren, Brighton Fringe and The Stockwell Playhouse, London (as well as some Timpson conferences along the way!). Timpson: The Musical is available to watch in all its glory on YouTube, since its release it has had tens of thousands of views and was selected for The Daily Express’ pick of films to watch! Check out what Timpson Ltd. themselves had to say about the show here.
