Description

Described by WhyNow magazine as a modern-day Under Milk Wood, and an 'unmissable hour of theatre' by LostInTheatreLand.co.uk, This Town arrives at the fringe after a successful sold-out run at Contact and Derby Theatre. Based on the epic poem And Within These Cobbled Streets published by Verve Press, This Town pushes the boundaries of spoken word, storytelling and theatre, dropping audiences into a small Midlands town whilst investigating the difficulties of male friendship, masculinity and sexuality. The characters will make you laugh cry and reflect on on the importance of close-knit communities supporting each other through difficult times.
