Red Shed (Work In Progress)

Catch this poignant standup comedy before it heads to Edinburgh

Red Shed is the third part in a trilogy that started with the multi award winning shows Bravo Figaro and Cuckooed. Mark returns to the place where he first started to perform in public, a red wooden shed in Wakefield, the Labour Club, to celebrate the club’s 50th birthday. Interviewing old friends and comrades Mark pieces together the club’s history and works with the club to campaign with some of the poorest workers in the country for their rights. It is the story of the battle for hope and the survival of a community in a small wooden shed. It is part theatre, part standup, part journalism, part activism and returns to Mark's obsessions of community and struggle. The show will involve the audience (in a nice way) to help recreate the shed and its inhabitants. Please note that latecomers may not be admitted.
