@ Gala Theatre and CinemaBook Now
01 March 2017
£16 (£12 concession)
Red Shed is the third part in a trilogy that started with the multi award winning shows Bravo Figaro and Cuckooed.
A story of strikes, fights, dinner ladies and commies. Crap beer, great beer, burgers and burger slingers. Pickets, placards, friendship, love, history, dreams and above all remembering.
Multi award winner Mark returns to the Gala Theatre to perform a show he first did in a red wooden shed in Wakefield, the labour club, to celebrate its 50th birthday. The show will involve the audience (in a nice way) to recreate the shed and its inhabitants. Part theatre, stand up, journalism, activism it’s the story of the battle for hope and the survival of a community in a small wooden shed.
“Evocative… hard to resist” ★★★★ Sunday Times
“The show will still leave even the most laissez-faire Thatcherite Tory with food for thought and a reminder as to how deep the scars of that era run” ★★★★ The Telegraph
“An intense and moving masterpiece… it really is a breath-taking performance” ★★★★★ What’s On London
“One of Britain’s greatest storytellers…beautifully-paced and structured…a passionate humanity that surpasses most other work at the Fringe” ★★★★★ The Scotsman
