The Italian Job
It’s with great pleasure we can announce the Italian première of Princess Pumpalot: The Farting Princess with a stage production, based on the original text of the book, taking place in Northern Italy in June 2015.
The production will be performed by the Benvenuto Players - an English speaking Youth Theatre Group run by Theatre Producer Alison Parnell who will also be directing the show. The Benvenuto Players are well-known among the foreign community in the area and have been delighting the public with pantomimes and classical theatre for almost 30 years.
Students from the European School and other schools in the area will put on a production of Princess Pumpalot, The Farting Princess in Ispra on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th June 2015.

The Quest For the Super-Bean
On Saturday the 7th February 2015, as part of National Library Week, we had the opportunity to perform the first public reading of our new adventure - Princess Pumpalot The Farting Princess & Guffy in the Quest for the Super-Bean (by Robin Mitchell).
It was good to test out the script in front of a lively audience. We're delighted to report back that everyone laughed in the right places and many took part in the group participation. Thanks to all who attended.
University of London Screening
A Tale of Two Syrias (Director Yasmin Fedda) was screened recently at SOAS, University of London in the department of Anthropology and Sociology. Yasmin was on hand to answer questions at the end of the screening.
SOAS, University of London is the only Higher Education institution in Europe specialising in the study of Asia, Africa and the Near and Middle East. SOAS is a remarkable institution. Uniquely combining language scholarship, disciplinary expertise and regional focus, it has the largest concentration in Europe of academic staff concerned with Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
A Tale of Two Syrias offers a unique perspective on what the dream of freedom means to two very different people in the face of a brutal regime, offering a vital snapshot of life in the year before Syria’s uprising.
