A Boy Called Porro

Tricolore’s bilingual play for children (7+), Un Bambino di Nome Porro (A Boy Called Porro), by Penny Culliford, was premiered at the Pleasance Theatre in Islington in November 2019.

Anthony Shrubsall directed. The cast was as follows: Patrick Marciano, Eloise Jones, Nadia Ostacchini & Simon Brandon.

This production would never have happened without the generous support of our sponsors; our lead sponsor was The Mazzini-Garibaldi Foundation.

Valued supporters also included the Catholic Association of Performing Arts, Belluzzo & Partners, Roberto Gaglione Notary, Oddono’s Gelati, and Casa Italiana S. Vincenzo Pallotti.
