THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2007 Matinees: 22, 26 & 29 September 2pm Preview: Wednesday 19 September Press Night: Thursday 20 September 7pm Pay What You Can Night: Monday 24 September The Hired Man, arguably the finest new British musical of the last thirty years, acclaimed for its epic, nostalgic, funny book and rousing, romantic, award-winning score, is now available on tour in the UK for the very first time in a new production by critically-acclaimed New Perspectives Theatre Company. Set in rural Cumbria in the early years of the twentieth century, The Hired Man tells the timeless, moving story of a young married couple and their struggle to carve a living from the land, just as the traditional rhythms of English country life are being interrupted by the gathering storm of war in Europe – haunting, thrilling, stirring stuff. BSL interpreted performance: 25 September Audio-described performance: 26 September Recommended for Adults and Older Children.
