CLOUDED

This show has been affected by our closure during the coronavirus outbreak. We are working with the company to reschedule their visit and will be in touch with bookers as soon as possible

We live in a problematic and chaotic world. Climate change is real, carbon emissions are burning the earth and poverty proves to still be a huge threat all around us. What a world to live in.

But what if there was an alternative?

What if we could change our very existence?

What if we could live in the internet? In The Cloud?

Clouded is a coming of age story, using the real thoughts, feelings and ideas of Yorkshire’s young people, that follows two friends’ physical journey from their humanity as we know it, to live inside the internet. Can they save us all from within The Cloud?

QUALITY STREET

This show has been affected by our closure during the coronavirus outbreak. We are working with the company to reschedule their visit and will be in touch with bookers as soon as possible

Phoebe Throssel lives on Quality Street, the bustling hub of a quaint northern town where she runs a school for unruly children.

Ten years since a tearful goodbye, an old flame returns from fighting Napoleon. But the look of disappointment on Captain Valentine’s face when he greets a more mature, less glamorous Phoebe, spurs our determined heroine to action.

She becomes the wild and sparkling Miss Lily, a younger alter-ego who soon entraps the clueless Captain. As their romance is rekindled, can she juggle both personas? Or will her deception scandalise the town and wreck any future with the man she loves?

J.M. Barrie’s delicious farce, written years before his now much-loved Peter Pan, was so well known in its day that it gave its name to the UK’s most popular chocolates, made in Halifax since 1936.

In Laurie Sansom’s directorial debut for Northern Broadsides, this rare revival also features a commentary from the Quality Street™ factory workers, whose own stories of hapless romance and growing old disgracefully give the show a playful Yorkshire twist.

THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE

A fascinating insight into the lives of brothel workers, a truthful and often hilarious portrait of a Much-maligned and
misunderstood profession. The play is composed entirely from conversations recorded inside an actual brothel, edited and
replicated on stage.

Aristocrats

Nikolai Pogodin’s Aristocrats

The School of the Arts at the University of Hull presents
Nikolai Pogodin’s Aristocrats translated by Anthony Wixley
In a new production directed by Amy Skinner at Gulbenkian Centre, University of Hull

A group of prisoners gather on the banks of the White Sea. Sentenced to hard labour, their job is to blow holes in the cliffs and build the new Belomor Canal.

Lemon and Beret are professional pickpockets. Kostya, the captain, is a criminal mastermind. Sonya is a drug addict. Sadovsky, the engineer, is a saboteur. Gromov is in charge. But his job isn’t just to change the White Sea landscape. His job is to change lives.

Rewriting the real events at Belomor prison camp, Aristocrats is a challenging and controversial insight into theatre made during the Stalin era. This new production explores both the play and its historical context – tackling questions of dictatorship, totalitarianism and the purpose of art.

An Ordinary Hero: The Jack Harrison Story

An incredible true story of outstanding talent and unimaginable courage.

An exciting new production of the play written by Ian Peter Judson, presented by the Pony Express Theatre Company, is being staged at Park Street Performing Arts Centre from Friday 8th November to Sunday 10th November.

Enthralling and tragic, “An Ordinary Hero” chronicles the life of Hull born and bred John “Jack” Harrison from his humble beginnings to the trenches of the Great War in Oppy, France.

Jack was very much a family man, living with his wife and childhood friend Lilian down Wharncliffe Street whilst working as a teacher at Lime Street School. He played professional rugby for Hull FC at the Boulevard and accomplished his lifelong ambition of scoring a try in the 1914 Challenge Cup final in the 6-0 victory against Wakefield Trinity. Jack Harrison still holds the unbroken record of scoring 52 tries in one season to this day.

Answering the call of duty from his country during the Great War, Jack signed up for the army in 1915 and was commissioned as a Temporary 2nd Lieutenant in the East Yorkshire 11th (Tradesmens) batallion. In February 1917 he was awarded the Military Cross for bravery in action.

On 3rd May 1917, Jack led his platoon on a night raid again the German positions at Oppy Wood. Losses were great and the attack failed. With his brigade pinned down by enemy gunfire, Jack singlehandedly charged a machine gun, successfully halting the barrage but was killed outright. He was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross for his gallant self-sacrifice.

Directed by Laura Suter with a stellar, all-local cast of Chloe Oldridge-Field, Julie Lloyd, Kev Shepherd, Jayden Platten, Dave Ross and Christopher C. Corbett as Jack, join us for an unforgettable journey of a Hull legend in this vivid and moving production.

Proceeds from sales will be donated to the Jack Harrison VC MC Statue Campaign.

Please note, this production contains flashing images, smoke and strobe lighting effects.
