Theatre comes to Ropery Hall
Two original theatre productions are on stage at Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall in quick succession.
On February 15 stand-up poet Kate Fox returns, in the company of actor Joanna Holden, with Where There’s Muck There’s Bras that was orginally commissioned by the Great Exhibition of the North 2018.
“This is a hilarious and thought-provoking show which sees Kate and Joanne explore the Northern women you’ve heard of (and the ones you haven’t) said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk.
“This funny performance lecture uncovers the hidden history of the writers, scientists, sportswomen, politicians, protestors, musicians and other heroines who make up a far more diverse North than we usually see,” she went on.
The following Saturday, February 22, sees writer, Radio 4 regular and creator of cult theatre show John Peel’s Shed John Osborne return to Ropery Hall with a brand new storytelling show, You’re In A Bad Way.
A funny, sad theatre show about family and the role music plays in our lives Writer, Radio 4 regular and creator of cult theatre show John Peel’s Shed John Osborne returns to Barton-on-Humber with a brand new storytelling show about music and dementia.
John, who grew up in Brigg, writes for television, theatre and radio. His first theatre show John Peel’s Shed enjoyed a complete sell out run at the Edinburgh Fringe and was adapted for BBC Radio 4.
