A show that is bound to light a spark from the inside out.

Brilliance, a 90-minute theatrical event that celebrates progress and change in a bright new world, is also a love story combined with eclectic live music (5 musicians).

1948 and 1963.  Everyone is gathering in the village hall.  Lightning has struck the hall roof.  Mrs Atkinson has called the repairman – a man who can fix a creaking door, chimneys that smoke.  And in he comes with his daughter, bright blue eyes full of brilliance, like an animal in from the woods.

Long after its arrival in the city, the slow process of rural electrification is starting to illuminate every corner and crevice of village life. As the dark evenings hold us in, 240 volts of alternating current and the humble electric light bulb allow us to gather and sing long into the night.

From the company that brought you It’s A Wonderful Life, The Iranian Feast and Brave Folk.

"A show with a big heart" Lyn Gardner (The Guardian) on The  Iranian Feast

"Once again Farnham Maltings held us entranced." Gwaenysgor village hall promoter on Miracle on 34th Street

"Well scripted, well-acted and brilliantly executed live music. A story about betrayal over love and affection … totally enthralling!"  Audience member, Rudry Parish Hall on Brilliance
