New Futures for Birmingham`s Historic Buildings

Coffin Fittings Works Celebrate Life

Posted June 9th, 2011 by Birmingham Conservation Trust with No Comments

Time moves on at the Coffin Fittings Works - Stop the Clocks!

As the products from the Coffin Fittings Works have been used in the celebration of lives for over 100 years, so the cast of Tin Box Company celebrate a particular life in their thought-provoking performance of Stop the Clocks. The audience takes a literal and metaphorical journey through the factory and through a life.

The directors, Jo Gleave and Jo Newman have worked with the cast and crew to devise and present a special evening in the Coffin Fittings Works. At times funny and at times serious, this bitter-sweet play is performed with dash and verve by the young company.  Inventive use of space, props and sets mark this out as a must-see if you want to experience something different in one of Birmingham’s Grade II* listed historic buildings.

Birmingham Conservation Trust volunteers act as ushers and look pretty good in boiler suits! All performances have sold out – returns only.
