Political rock opera The Reincarnation of Trim Tab Jim returns to London for a three-day run at the Camden People’s Theatre, 18-20 August, as part of Camden Fringe.

The Reincarnation of Trim Tab Jim sold out on its debut run at the Brighton Fringe in 2015, followed by performances at the 1000- seat Union Chapel in Islington and the 250-seat Old Market Theatre, Hove, two performances in a day in December 2015.

Twelve years in the planning and two years in rehearsal, the show is written by and stars James Mannion, a performance poet and rock singer of 17 years.

An unnamed protagonist is brutally mugged and left for dead in the street. Awakening into Death’s Waiting Room he meets the Angel of Death, who encourages him to reflect on his life to date. Accepting that his legacy leaves a little to be desired, he realises he must sing for his reincarnation.

Can he persuade the Angel to allow him one more chance at life? And what will be the price of re-admission?

The Angel of Death is played by Penny Scott-Andrews (Julius Caesar, Big Bitesize Breakfast, Protocol and Stage Secrets).

Trim Tab Jim is accompanied by 12-strong all-female choir Women of Note; and the show is directed by experienced actor, writer and director Amy Onyett (The Jungle Book,  Horrible Histories, A Christmas Carol and A Slice of Life).
