Our past productions


Performed by Sam Devereaux

Directed by Ewa Kolodziejska

Sam’s one man show about the damaging effects of fame was a critically acclaimed part of the Brighton and Camden Fringe Festivals. Written while Sam was at drama school and directed by Ewa Kolodziejska. Sam was nominated for Best Male Performer at the Latest 7 Awards.

Sam’s costume in the show was created by Flying Pickle’s own Julia. While Georgie designed the production and also contributed a voice over performance to the show.

Devereaux’s monologue is a masterpiece, both as a playwright and an actor.  In a skilfully-written script, the singer’s solitary rambling never seems contrived, and his bittersweet back-story emerges as naturally as if we’d seen the other characters appear in the room. Richard Stamp, Fringe Guru

OUT AT SEA By Slawomir Mrozek

Performed by Sam Devereaux, Jon Palmer, Karl Sedgwick, Mat Ruttle, Rachel Esposti and Barry Rutley

Directed by Karl Sedgwick – Produced by Iron Lion theatre company

Slawomir Mrozek’s darkly comedic one-act play examines how three castaways attempt to decide how one will be cannibalised to save the other two. The three castaways, known only as: Fat, Medium and Thin, try democracy, coercion and, as their situation becomes more desperate, outright tyranny.

In an Iron Lion theatre company co-production, Sam and Jon worked with comedy actors Karl Sedgwick, Mat Ruttle, Rachel Esposti and Barry Rutley to create two productions of this wonderful satire on the London Fringe.

The acting of all the members of the group was very good. Devereaux commanded the stage with real presence and excellent comic timing, allowing many subtle nuances of performance into a very entertaining character. Sedgwick, was also excellently comedic whilst contrasting this nicely with moments of real pathos and meaning. Jon Palmer was particularly amusing in his comedy cameos. Adam Moulder, Broadway Baby

Performed by Sam Devereaux and Jim Devereaux

For 11 years Sam and his real life brother Jim (aka JD King) toured the UK as Jake and Elwood, The Blues Brothers. Their real life relationship gave the show a unique energy. Across hundreds of performances they played in every conceivable type of venue from the RAC on Piccadilly to Sussex County Cricket Ground to an 18th century bakery in Portchester.

Sam’s deft skills with the harmonica and Jim’s prodigious singing ability gave the show real musical depth. Frequently backed by soul band, The Devotions, The Master Blues Brothers was high octane fun and a theatrical experience of a lifetime for two real-life brothers of blues.

The Master Blues Brothers was formed in 2005 and has been consistently praised for its authenticity and high energy. With songs including such classics as Soul Man, Everybody Needs Somebody and Minnie the Moocher this revue is packed with manic energy and tongues firmly in cheeks. WhatsOnStage Feature
