DOUBLE HEADER: Boolin Prams and Salt Music


A Double Header at the Minster. Matinee starts 2:30 PM | Evening performance 7:30 PM

Boolin Prams tells the story of two Noreens on the Road in the 1970s. These were the days when the men were at sea or three day millionaires when home; the women ran the community and money ebbed and flowed like the tides - everything down the pawn shop when the man was at sea to be redeemed when home. Mother and daughter cope as best they can and then, the story sharpens as it is time for another pram. Written by Rob Bell and Directed by Shane Edwards; the two Noreens are Gina Garton and Tarin Puckering. Another Play for Today from The History Troupe.

After the interval. Salt Music tells a story of the Hessle Road fishing community in words and song. The words are from Angela Brodie - who grew up around the Hessle Road fishing community; the music is by Steve Halliwell - a founder member of Hull Truck, who founded LiTTle MACHINe setting poems to music. Steve works with Roger McGough, Carol Ann Duffy and many more. This performance includes a choir from Trinity House Academy.
