“One of Britain’s greatest storytellers… beautifully-paced and structured” ~ The Scotsman

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.

Running time 75 mins, no interval.
