Betwixt! is a musical comedy centring on New York writer Bailey, who is suffering fro writer’s block, and his flamboyant roomate Cooper Fitzgerald.
When the pair are catapulted headfirst into a strange enchanted world, it fulfils a prophecy that tells of a brave hero and a great queen. They are tasked with searching out a fading daytime TV star who is the only hope for saving a pregnant princess from losing the throne.
Sex-crazed nymphs, hunchbacks, cross-dressing mutes, dancing reporters, evil world-dominating enchantresses and a disembodied head with a Bavarian accent feature in the sitcom-style musical Betwixt!
Betwixt!, which is written and directed by Ian McFarlane, premiered at the King’s Head theatre in 2008 before receiving an concert production at the West End’s Ambassadors theatre later that year.
In addition to Betwixt!, McFarlane has directed productions including the UK premiere of Zombie Prom at the Landor theatre and Nine at th Albany theatre.
