Local theatrical company the Tudor Players are set to take the stage by storm with their production of ‘Brassed Off’, which they’ll be performing at the Library Theatre later this month.
This is the second instalment of their British Film Season, following their production of The 39 Steps, and the second time that the company have presented Brassed Off. Originally a 1996 film written and produced by Mark Herman, Brassed Off tells the story of a colliery brass band and the surrounding community following the closure of their pit.
Phil Gasgoyne, who returns to direct the Tudor Players in their adaptation, witnessed first-hand the impact of pit closures on communities and is set to bring this thought-provoking and moving story to life once again. The Stannington Brass Band will be joining the Players to provide some big-brass-band musical delights.
The show runs from May 22 – 26 at the Library Theatre, Tudor Square. Tickets cost £8/£7 concessions and are available on 0114 285 3450, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
