REDCLIFFE, is based on the true events of William Critchard and Richard Arnold in Redcliffe, Bristol in the 1750s and is an epic tale of forbidden love during the persecution people faced for hundreds of years.

William is feeling the pressure to find a wife whilst also being the breadwinner to his family. His mother's nagging doesn't help. When he meets Richard, he unlocks a world he had never dared to explore before and it's clear there is no going back.

REDCLIFFE will be presented in a workshop format with actors using scripts at times, with limited tickets available to the public.

Produced by The Other Palace and funded via the venue's Development Fund, where 50p of every ticket sold in the Main House goes to fund developing new work. Further plans for the production will be revealed in due course.

The Other Palace

The Other Palace is dedicated to discovering, developing, exploring, and celebrating theatre. It's a lively, friendly, and inventive place where ideas can be shared and explored, and the next generation of theatre-makers are encouraged, supported, and celebrated.

The venue has an extraordinary history dating back to 1766 when it began life as the Charlotte Chapel and was turned into the Westminster Theatre in 1931. In 2021 the venue was acquired by Bill Kenwright Ltd, one of the largest commercial theatre producers in the UK.

The Other Palace Studio is a creative hub for both the aspiring and accomplished within the industry. The intimate space breaks down the barriers between audiences and performers and provides a platform for new musical theatre to be developed and celebrated.

The Other Palace runs multiple schemes to nurture and develop new writing including the Making a Musical podcast, Musical Bites lunchtime readings, and a development grant.
