Brassed Off

by Paul Allen from the screenplay by Mark Herman

24th June to 1st July 2017



Adapted for the stage by Paul Allen from Mark Herman’s award winning film, ‘Brassed Off’opened at Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre in 1998 and subsequently transferred to the National Theatre. It is 1994 and Grimly Colliery is set to close as the accountants believe it to be unprofitable. It means 1,200 job losses,a dying town and the end for the pit’s brass band founded in 1881. But under the leadership of Danny, coughing through dust coated lungs the fight goes on……… all the way to the Albert Hall.

‘ celebratory and defiant…….sheer emotional power…….’ The Guardian
