Visit us here this holiday season for 12 days of exclusive content. ACT’s “12 Days” kicks off on Christmas Day with a few Christmas treats and the North American premiere of Albert Lamb’s radio play Algonquin Suite. Algonquin Suite follows the fortunes of English actors Neil and Edwina Canard, long the toast of London, as they arrive in New York, hoping to break into Broadway, in the final heady days before the Wall Street Crash of 1929. Lamb, a former resident of both Tamworth and Sandwich, stars as American songwriter Alec Limply, with Eleanor Holliday and Nicholas Allen in the roles of Edwina and Neil.

Algonquin Suite will run for several nights, and be followed by a series of ACT performances recorded live. Offerings will include the Back Bay Guitar Trio, GiveWay, Le Vent du Nord, Hanneke Cassel, Harry Manx, Red Molly, Gràda, Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem, and the Two Man Gentlemen Band. Visit daily to learn the fate of Neil and Edwina, and to enjoy hours of eclectic music. Listen while you can: the music will be taken down with the Christmas trees and the garlands on January 6th... ACT wishes you a peaceful, joyful holiday season and a Happy New Year.
