Nononsense great nights out


I am delighted to welcome you to Hull Truck Theatre’s new season Those of you who have been coming to Hull Truck regularly will already know the exceptional quality of the Theatre’s home grown work but I am especially delighted to be launching this new season by welcoming back Hull Truck founder Mike Bradwell. Mike is returning to the Main Stage for the first time in 30 years to direct a brilliant new play by Tim Fountain – the hilarious and often outrageous Queen of the Nile. We will also be welcoming back another Hull Truck favourite – Tim Firth. Tim’s Christmas show The Flint Street Nativity was incredibly popular and this time he returns with Sign of the Times, a gentle and poignant comedy that will appeal to all. August will see Hull Truck producing the results of an exciting new partnership with Paines Plough and Watford Palace Theatre. Jumpers for Goalposts is a wonderful new play by our Associate Playwright Tom Wells and is a heart-warming piece that will be just in time for the football season! Keeping with the sporting theme we are happy to welcome the Stephen Joseph Theatre Company with John Godber’s Muddy Cows, a great new comedy that will open a window onto the fiesty world of women’s rugby.

4 SHOWS FOR £10 each

Our renowned Creative Learning Department will be directing the Youth Theatre in two new productions: The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 ¾ on the Main Stage and Wind in the Willows in the beautiful grounds of Hymers College. Finishing off the season, and indeed the year, we have two exciting shows for Christmas. Bring your little ones to join the jury in the trial of the Big Bad Wolf in Little Red Riding Hood, adapted and directed by Associate Director Nick Lane. For the grown-ups, real life and the world of the classic Christmas annuals start to merge in our brand new comedy by Mick Martin, The Flame-Haired Dynamo. As well as all the above we have even more no-nonsense great nights out from Being Tommy Cooper through to the Jazz Festival - but I’ll leave you to read through this brochure to discover those. We look forward to welcoming you to Hull Truck Theatre soon. Pat Weller Interim Executive Director on behalf of the Hull Truck Theatre team

Rebecca Hutchinson

Viktoria Kay

Andrew Dowbiggin

‘I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will.’ From a harsh childhood controlled by unfeeling adults, Jane Eyre has to rely on her own courage and convictions to make her way in the world. She longs to learn. She dares to dream. Employed as a governess, she travels across the bleak Yorkshire moors to the mysterious Thornfield Hall – a house of locked doors with a dangerous secret. There she meets the strange, sardonic and intriguing Mr Rochester. Can the constraints of society and the dark past be overcome? Should Jane trust her head or follow her heart? Hull Truck Theatre brings to life the classic story of love, loss and redemption in an intriguing new adaptation of one of the great gothic novels, directed by Nick Lane (Lady Chatterley’s Lover, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde).

Sign of the Times by Tim Firth Director Nick Lane

From the writer of The Flint Street Nativity and Calendar Girls

For Frank and Alan, the writing’s on the wall ... By day, Frank puts signs on the sides of buildings. He’s been doing it for 30 years, and he takes pride in his work. No one else is treated to the stunning views of Hull that he sees, or understands the true beauty of the vertical bracketing system. And by night... by night he is a writer of great, thrilling spy novels. Unpublished, but that’s hardly the point. When a work experience scheme lands him with unenthused teenager Alan, Frank’s fascinating knowledge seems to fall on deaf ears (though maybe it’s just the young lad’s headphones getting in the way). But is there more to Alan than shrugging, grunting and dropping things? And are they as different as Frank first thought? In a world where jobs are scarce, dignity is difficult and they’re carting away the vending machines with the Twixes still in them, is that flickering ‘For Sale’ just a sign of the times? From the acclaimed writer of The Flint Street Nativity and Calendar Girls comes a heart-warming comedy about having pride in your work, faith in your dreams and trust in who you are.

New Writing

New Writing. It’s the heart of what we do Without new writing it is fair to say that Hull Truck could not have come as far as it has. From its earliest incarnation under Mike Bradwell, through the years under John Godber right up to the present day, our exclusive focus continues to be the work of living playwrights and contemporary theatre-makers; a huge part of that being the drive to discover, nurture and develop playwrights and their plays. We run a number of initiatives which support writers and their work. See www.hulltruck.co.uk/ open-space for details on all of the following:

Open submission policy

Any writer can submit a new play to us. We are looking for cracking stories; things that have us on the edge of our seats, falling about laughing or reaching for the hankies! There’s no set style we’re looking for – just good, strong, imaginative writing.

Playwright groups

Peer-led groups which meet regularly. The aim of each group is to develop each writer’s craft, through discussion, debate, reading and workshopping. Current Groups include a core group of regional writers, a young writers group for the under 18s, and a women’s writing group.

Courses

The PlayWrite course is for aspiring, nonprofessional writers and is an important part of Hull Truck’s commitment to identifying the writing voices of the future. Details of the next courses will be posted on the website soon.

Script-in-hand (A Play, a Pie & a Pint) readings

Our hugely popular monthly readings of new plays, allowing the writer to work with a director and actors for 2 - 3 days and to put the work-in-progress in front of a (fed and watered) audience. With thanks to our sponsors Wold Top Brewery and Pie.

Short Play Opportunities & Commissions

We are always looking for opportunities for writers to create short plays for Hull Truck, and indeed to be commissioned by us to write a full-length play. We currently have three local writers under commission, but are always on the lookout for more. Opportunities to get involved will be posted on the website as they come up. The Writer Support Programme at Hull Truck is developing all the time.

‘Pandora smiled at me in school dinner today, but I was choking on a piece of gristle so I couldn’t smile back. Just my luck!’ Adrian Mole is not one of the popular kids. He is terrible at sports, has one friend called Nigel and likes to think of himself as an intellectual. He also has spots, a dopey dog and an unsual obsession with measuring his ‘thing’. But two events are about to rock this teenager’s world. First his dad George becomes increasingly attracted to the neighbour...and then there’s the new girl in school – Pandora... As hilarious and true as it was when it was first written, Sue Townsend’s unlikely hero is brought to glorious life by Hull Truck Youth Theatre in this stunning musical, combining the sights and sounds and passions of 1981 with original songs. Come along and revisit your youth in the company of the original ‘Inbetweener’.

Ex-England international rugby union player Maggie Deakin is about to step down as coach of the Muddy Cows, but there’s a final crunch match to be played. On a soggy Saturday in Yorkshire, Maggie rallies her team to take on the unbeatable New Zealand side, The Black Ferns. Personal battles play out on the pitch as a team of nurses, students, receptionists, lawyers and housewives fight to excel in what was once uniquely a man’s world. Maggie faces a side at the top of their game, as well as her own uncertain future. Will her courage and passion win out? Muddy Cows gets inside the world of elite female rugby with crashing tackles, rucking mothers, and real life hookers. BAFTA-winning playwright John Godber has written extensively about sport, including iconic rugby league comedy Up ‘N’ Under which won an Olivier Award and was made into a feature film.

LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD

Written and directed by Nick Lane Music by Tristan Parkes

How bad is the Big Bad Wolf? He blows pig’s houses down, thinks nothing of eating seven little kids, and don’t forget what he did to poor Red Riding Hood; frightening her in a wood, hiding her Gran and trying to gobble her up. Let’s face it, his name says it all – he’s big and bad. Isn’t he? Isn’t he? This year, the people who brought you The Elves & the Shoemaker, A Christmas Carol and Pinocchio are back to ask you one simple question – should the Wolf be sent down for his crimes... or is he the victim of a terrible smear campaign? With silly songs, ridiculous rhymes, lots of bonkers fairytale characters and a Judge made of Fudge, this is one Christmas trial you’d be mad to miss... plus, you – yes, you – get to choose the end of the show!

This Christmas Hull Truck Theatre presents the World Premiere of

THE FLAME-HAIRED DYNAMo by Mick Martin

The Flame-Haired Dynamo – coming to life this Christmas!

This Christmas, one man’s mid-life crisis is going into extra time... ‘Go on, Titch; hit it! We’re in injury time, and the chairman’s dying wish was to win that cup... ...GOOOOOOAAAAAAAAL!” When Chris McCann was thirteen his world seemed to be falling apart. His parents were splitting up, his granddad ill, and girls were a total mystery... but there was one man he could rely on to always be there – his favourite comic character, Titch McCreavie, aka The FlameHaired Dynamo! Titch was constant; dependable. He never changed. Now Chris is fat, fed-up and forty-five. His kids don’t understand him, his boss doesn’t want to know – and his wife’s at her wit’s end. Rather than chuck himself off the Humber Bridge, however, he turns to the old Christmas annuals, the old stories... and Titch. But what if the stories started to change? What if Titch McCreavie’s world of perfect goals, flared jeans and fondue parties suddenly became more than ink and paper?

Reality and fantasy collide in this hilarious and touching new play created especially for Hull Truck Theatre by Mick Martin, writer of Northern Soul smash Once Upon a Time in Wigan.

The Fapy Lafertin Trio

FRI 26 - SUN 28 JULY

Mud Morganfield

(Eldest Son of Muddy Waters) Band

Muddy Waters’ eldest son uncannily resembles the great blues-man, both in looks and as a singer. He’s got a stunning band as many who heard the knock out appearance last month on Jools Holland “Later” will testify. They carry the torch on a great tradition. Muddy was the biggest influence on the British blues and rock scene of the 60’s – from the Rolling Stones to Fleetwood Mac to Eric Clapton – and his delta and Chicago blues electrified and excited audiences, just as his son’s new band is doing in 2012. “It’s almost like having the old man back again” (Mojo)

The partnership also raises the company’s profile, has a positive effect on our staff and demonstrates our commitment to playing a part in the local community.

Mark Fleming, Director, Hull Cars, Said: From a partnering perspective, the Hull Truck theatre has an unwavering commitment to understanding and meeting the business objectives of Hull Cars as a corporate affiliate. Their aptitude for building business relationships and consumer growth retains a firm focus on creativity, innovation, flexibility and professionalism with very a user-friendly approach. While many people know that the Hull truck Theatre is the cities leading theatre producer, not many know that it is also a registered charity. Consequently meeting costs for learning, access, diversity and the generation of new work while maintaining low ticket prices must be a real challenge, and we feel that our function as a supporter will play a vital role in continuing the fabulous work in the city the Hull Truck is advocating, and furthermore links seamlessly with our Corporate Social Responsibility as a business.
