Wallop Mrs Cox
From Tue 8 to Sat 12 June, Heart Breakfast's Ed James will be putting his acting skills to the test in the highly-acclaimed, home-grown musical, Wallop Mrs Cox at Birmingham Hippodrome.
“Liverpool has Blood Brothers, London has Me and My Girl and now Birmingham’s got Wallop Mrs Cox!”, screamed a flurry of stunning reviews when this Brummie show first
burst onto the theatre scene. With songs like Hello Bull Ring, The Back of Rackhams, Twenty Four Hours a Day and the show’s anthem Birmingham, it combines deliciously sarcastic dialogue with the dialect synonymous with this great City. Wallop gets audiences laughing, crying and on their feet cheering with pride.
Set in the Bull Ring, Brummagem history is relived through the eyes of Emily Cox, mother of thirteen and matriarch of the community. Five actresses play her as she ages from a young girl to an old lady, living through change, turbulence and two world wars.
Now the Wallop phenomenon is back, bigger, better and brighter in a professional and community co-production especially designed for Birmingham Hippodrome’s stage.
A BMOS Musical Theatre Company production in conjunction with Birmingham Hippodrome.
