Preview by Paul Nelson

CONCORDANCE and the Friends of Brompton Cemetery are to present
Borrowed Scenes - Belle in the Dingle, devised by Neil McPherson from the novels by George Borrow.

To celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of George Borrow (1803-1881), best-selling author, linguist, honorary gypsy and 'resident' of Brompton Cemetery, Concordance, one of the two resident companies at the Finborough Theatre, presents a script-in-hand performance of scenes from Lavengro and The Romany Rye in the delightful surroundings of Brompton Cemetery's Chapel.

In 1825, the penniless George Borrow walked through England and later recorded his adventures in a racy blend of fact and fiction.

We recount his time in Mumper's Dingle, including a knockdown fight with "The Blazing Tinman", a visit from his gypsy blood brother, and, above all, his relationship with the "splendid road-girl", Isopel Berners - one of the "most touching romances in English literature".

Borrowed Scenes, or Belle in the Dingle, Devised by Neil McPherson from the works of George Borrow. Presented by Concordance and The Friends of Brompton Cemetery in The Chapel, Brompton Cemetery (entrance in Fulham Road or Old Brompton Road) on Sunday September 28 at 3pm. Admission free with retiring collection. Performance length one hour. Booking: 020 7373 3842.
