World Premiere Production

Suppose you were all young, poor, barely scraping a living, some of you homeless…

Suppose one of you, a mutual friend, has just been pulled, drowned, from your local river…

Suppose you wanted to let the world know what killed them…

And then suppose that one of you was, at that time, reading this Charles Dickens novel about friendship, kindness, cruelty, money, lack of money, business and piles of seemingly useless dust, which somehow seems to be all about your mutual friend.

The city is Hull. The river is the Humber. The time? Can you actually tell whether it is 1865 or 2017?

Hull Truck Youth Theatre’s groups unite on the main stage in this feisty new production, adapted by award-winning writer Bryony Lavery.
