Celebrating ten years since Hull Truck Theatre moved into its home on 50 Ferensway, a collective of Hull writers explore what’s been happening locally and globally since 2009.
Inspired by Hull City’s nail-biting promotion to the premier league, 2016’s chilling ‘Killer Clown’ craze and the eye-opening worldwide #MeToo Movement that shook 2017; 10 ten-minute plays have been created, one to represent each year the building has been open.
Performed by a large cast of Hull Truck’s Young Company aged 14 to 25.
Recommended age: 11+
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.
