Event Description

Produced in Association with the Clifton Suspension Bridge Visitor Centre to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the bridge.

The Engineer's Corset is based on a true life event in the Brunel household. When Isambard swallows a coin, after playing a familiar game with his children, his wife Mary waits anxiously as her husband's life hangs in the balance. It is a true story; one that will remind you of Brunel's genius while also revealing some unknown local history.

Theatre makers Louise Matthews Productions Ltd, Chantry Dance Company and Janet Goddard have collaborated on this project to help share local history with local people. Through gripping drama, movement and dance we present this unbelievable story of one of the greatest men who ever lived. With a cast made up entirely from the local community.

Come and join us for an evening of support and celebration.

Tickets available now from the Colston Hall, or 0844 887 1500. Prices £14/ £10
