Three-way joint production will help cash-starved theatres

A video of Oldham Coliseum's hugely popular 2019 production of The Hired Man is to be streamed to help raise money for the theatre and its partners.

The show, a joint production with the Queen's Theatre, Hornchurch and Hull Truck, played to critical acclaim across the country and won three Offie (Off West End Theatre) award nominations, including for actress Lauryn Redding for best female performance in a musical. The production was filmed for the Queen’s Theatre archive on the Hornchurch stage.

The Melvyn Bragg/Howard Goodall streamed show premiere will be on Monday June 15 at 7.30pm, after which it will be available for a week on the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch YouTube channel and through each of the theatres' websites
