Admission £3, tickets will be available on the door. Flap. Whatever.
They write, rehearse and produce Christian musicals in Cambridge. People's opinions of the musicals seem to range from "unsubtle allegory of the Christian message with some bad songs" to "funny and thought-provoking night out with some great songs". The opinions are truer some years than others.

Soul Trader (Mayweek 2003)
The 2003 MayWeek show, 'Soul Trader', was written by EdCooke?, music by JeffNeate?, and starred JacquelineWalpole (Salana from Frontiers) and StuGill (Monty from WorkingAngelsClub?).
"A revolutionary approach to Brechtian direction, amazing original music and the mysterious Soul Trader herself combine with witty and meaningful dialogue to make this a show you need to see."
"One of Satan's craftiest henchwomen (Walpole) arrives to torment the lives of three budding Christians in the prime of their youth, love and friendship.

The souls of humankind are the spoils..."
