The Birthright is an audio musical comedy based on the life of Bible patriarch Jacob, (Joseph's Father). Jacob lies, cheats and steals in order to claim his older brother's inheritance. But when a con goes wrong Jacob finds himself on the receiving end and gets a taste of his own medicine. Jacob will learn the futility in stealing an inheritance he cannot keep and discover a birthright he cannot lose.

A word from MF Jackson (Writer and Producer)

Hi, 'The Birthright' came out of a Lockdown project I put together after my daughter's experience in the Westend cast of Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'School of Rock.' Inspired to have a go myself I put together a few songs. a few songs became fifteen and a script soon followed. With the help of some amazing actors, musicians and family members, 'The Birthright' is here!

Jacob is unlike any other 'hero' you can find in the Bible. He's not particuarly pious, he gets away with far too much but also gets punished for doing the right thing! In many ways he's just like us. I hope you enjoy the show, but more than that I hope 'The Birthright' will leave you with questions. Questions about the blessings we have and the scars we carry to keep them.
