Pre sale is now closed for Under Us All. There are still tickets for sale on the door.
Under Us All is an intimate, deep and delicately disquieting piece of theatre. Directed by Gwilym Lawrence and performed by Gordon Poad – who will play three generations of the same family – the verbatim piece will offer audiences the opportunity to come face-to-face with some of Tyneside’s less prominent voices, celebrating both the region’s rich diversity and its shared humanity.
The piece has grown out of social geography research conducted by Michael Richardson at Newcastle University. The piece presents and builds on the stories and testimonies of working-class Irish Tynesiders in Hebburn, exploring the ways in which notions of masculinity, Irishness, religion, family, health, music, life and death change and shift over the years and from individual to individual.
Showing at Sanctuary Artspace, ST Edmunds Chapel, Gateshead High Street, NE8 1DL.
Thursday 2nd May, 8.00pm. For tickets please contact Box Office 07796478024.
