Hull New Theatre
Based on the bestselling novel, this theatrical tour de force comes to Hull hot on the heels of an acclaimed West End run. As a haunting tale of friendship – which follows one man’s journey to confront his past and find redemption – this searing drama is an epic showstopper. Set in a divided Afghanistan on the brink of war, it promises to be a moving and unforgettable thriller for an adult audience.
? "This is a production with real heart which brings new depth to a heart-rending tale."
?? thank you, @midlandstheatre!

Hull Truck Studio
This production has got something for everyone. Hull Truck’s Human Electric Tree is brought to us by the good folks at Silent Uproar, and is an off-kilter, coming-of-age exploration of the systems which young people are put through. If you’re a fan of American Psycho, Scroobius Pip, The History Boys and anything in between, then this will be right up your street.
