Mark Thomas: The Red Shed
Thu 23 Mar
Running Time: 75mins, no interval - Mark Thomas will be available to meet and greet at the end of the show.
The 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 where he first started to perform, 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.
