An Olympic hopeful. A political car crash. The fallout from a fictional nuclear winter.
Join Sheffield Theatres for stories of solidarity and survival from the Steel City, sound tracked by new versions of classics from some of Sheffield’s most celebrated artists including I Bet That You Look Good on the Dancefloor (Arctic Monkeys); Pour Some Sugar on Me (Def Leppard) and Sing it Back (Moloko).
From writer Chris Bush (Standing at the Sky’s Edge), The Band Plays On is a rousing night of extraordinary tales and live music. Funny, moving and often unexpected, these episodes from our past might start to show us a way forward.
Cast includes Jocasta Almgill (Rent, & Juliet), Anna-Jane Casey (Annie Get Your Gun, Flowers for Mrs Harris), Sandra Marvin (Showboat, Waitress), Maimuna Memon (Standing at the Sky’s Edge, Jesus Christ Superstar) and Jodie Prenger (A Taste of Honey, Oliver!).
