Mark Thomas: The Red Shed

Suitable for 16+

Lakin McCarthy and Mark Thomas in Association with West Yorkshire Playhouse present Mark Thomas: The Red Shed. Directed by Joe Douglas.

The Red Shed is the third part in a trilogy of multi award winning shows (Bravo Figaro and Cuckooed) 

A story of strikes, dinner ladies and commies. Crap beer, great beer, burgers and burger slingers. Pickets, placards, friendship, love, history, dreams and above all remembering.

Mark returns to where he first performed, a red wooden shed in Wakefield, the labour club, to celebrate its 50th birthday. Part theatre, stand up, journalism, activism, it’s the story of the battle for hope and the survival of a community.
