CURRENT SHOW |HINDLE WAKES
Presented by Tower Theatre Company
28th June – 2nd July 7.30pm
Matinee Saturday 2nd 3pm
by Stanley Houghton
Directed by Ian Hoare
It is ‘wakes week’ in the Lancashire cotton town of Hindle, when the factories close and everyone goes on holiday. The Hawthorns are waiting for their daughter Fanny, a feisty young millworker, to come home from Blackpool, where she’s been staying with a friend – or so she has told them. When the truth surfaces, three families are thrown into turmoil.
Written in 1910, the play paints a gripping picture of how class, sex and budding feminism interact to signal change. Highly controversial when first performed, it remains brilliantly compelling today.
An amateur production.
