Channeling Jabez

“Cleverly staged and strangely attractive”

Theatre mates

Giles Croft will be joining us on Friday 27 March to perform his peculiarly fascinating show, Channeling Jabez.

Before Eddie the Eagle… there was Jabez Wolffe!

Jabez Wolffe, Channel swimmer, variety artist and international star received obituaries in papers as wide ranging as the New York Times, The Jewish Chronicle and the Western Daily Press. For more than 30 years his achievements were celebrated across the world but following his death he was soon forgotten.

An entertainment in 21 attempts.

Written and performed by Wolffe’s 3rd cousin once removed (work that out) this show is part (auto)biography and wholly a celebration of a peculiarly British form of sporting hero.

Giles Croft is well-known and renowned in the arts from his 18 year tenure at Nottingham Playhouse as Artistic Director. Giles has directed over 60 productions, and is also a fantastic playwright whose work has been produced nationally, and in Europe.

All of us at Squire Performing Arts Centre are thrilled to have him with us and to be able to host this fantastic show.

Book your tickets now to avoid missing out on this unique opportunity to see Giles perform in one of Nottingham’s newest creative venues

Sincere and loving tribute to a man of remarkable tenacity
