An ex-trawlerman from East Hull.
An adopted teenager from Hessle.
An arsonist from Orchard Park.
All unknown to one another.
All apparently unconnected victims of brutal murders.
But Detective Sergeant Aector McAvoy reckons there’s a link. Trouble is, when you blow the whistle on your boss, however corrupt, no one listens to a grass.
Because if they don’t the list of victims will only get longer. And, for McAvoy at least, much, much closer to home…
Set in Hull and based on the thrilling crime novel by bestselling author David Mark, Ensemble 52 brings Aector McAvoy’s first case to the stage in a stunning adaptation by award winning writers Richard Vergette (Dancing Through the Shadows, As We Forgive Them) and Nick Lane (The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, My Favourite Summer), directed by Andrew Pearson (A Steady Rain, Great Expectations).
A pioneering theatre with a unique Northern Voice, locally rooted, global in outlook, inspiring artists, audiences and communities to reach their greatest potential. We produce and present inspiring theatre that reflects the diversity of a modern Britain. We provide the resources, space and support to grow people and ideas, are an ambassador for our city, a flagship for our region and a welcoming home for our communities. Through our work with schools and local communities we engage with thousands of young people, disabled groups and adults, offering opportunities to participate in the arts, whether as the first step into a career, a way to build confidence and meet new people, or as part of a rounded education. During our Year of Exceptional Drama as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017 we welcomed a record number of 108,000 audience members at our home in Hull and on tour around the UK. We were thrilled to work with a wide range of internationally renowned artists and companies to stage 13 home-produced plays, including 7 new commissions. We have announced our ambitious equality and diversity plans as part of our commitment to opening up access to all aspects of the theatre. The animation below details how and why we will be ensuring our doors are well and truly flung open to all. It was developed by the theatre’s Inclusion Action Group.
