Jim Clapp is coming to The Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch with his latest and greatest production ‘Magnum Opus’.
22nd October 2020 – 8pm
‘Jim Clapp’s Magnum Opus’ is an anarchic and hilarious solo show starring and co-written by Sam Rix (Top Boy, The Royals). It is directed by co-writer Tim McNiven.
It’s opening night and someone from Radio 4 is in, however the actors have dropped out and his set is in flames on the M4. Jim Clapp has put all of his money into this show and with his old contacts ingnoring his calls or just dead, this is his final chance. The show must go on, with the help of you, the audience.
Underscored by comedy throughout, the show jumps from crafted set pieces to audience participation, asking them to contribute music and dialogue. As a result, the audience has a direct input in creating a unique show every time.
