They’ve recently celebrated news that they’re being funded by the National Lottery Community Fund to keep The Living Room open for three years - now the Back to Ours team are spreading the love with a free outdoor show here at North Point Shopping Centre.
Back to Bransholme – a free, outdoor show in the car park– has been devised, produced and directed by the Back to Ours team. Born out of stories of a ghostly airman seen by locals in the Centre - the previous site of RAF Sutton upon Hull - it spans seventy decades of love, loss and laughter in what’s being described as ‘a 1940’s punk-pop circus opera.’
Back to Ours Director Louise Yates says:
“We’re always up at Bransholme talking to people, and this story of the airman kept coming up. We knew straight away there was a story to be told.
“But we’re Back to Ours, aren’t we? So we’re mixing it all up with a pinch of punk, a dose of opera, a load of circus, dance, live music and a huge cast. It’s something completely new and ambitious, and we’re inviting people to get their big coats on and huddle up for a love story through the decades.”
“It’s a celebration, part tragedy, part comedy – you’ll come away from it feeling uplifted and a bit emotional about what you’ve experienced.”
Back to Bransholme will run in the car park (Wilko’s end) from Saturday 26 to Tuesday 29 October, 8-9pm, and is free and unticketed.
