This magical tale unfolds as you follow intrepid investigator Nellie around Theatre Royal Brighton. It’s her most peculiar case to date and she needs your help to solve the mystery and put things right.

Nellie Limelight and the Oysters of Time is written by Stuart Warwick, directed by Joy Forsythe and designed by Abi Horn. Nellie Limelight is brought to life by Florence Leon’s funny, physical and quirky performance; and Karl Williams plays Bert, the theatre’s maintenance man who is a dab hand at creating time machines! He also plays Bert’s demanding, selfish and downright nasty sister Dame Battie Baubles.
