Local theatre to perform at Gainsborough Heritage Centre

A group of young people holding a banner saying Equal rights at work.

Young people from Gainsborough will perform a short play inspired by Gainsborough Heritage Centre this Saturday 1 July.

Under Starry Skies is a celebration of Gainsborough and a play that unearths hidden stories from a post-war Britain. Told by an ensemble of young performers, this performance allows us to see the past through a new perspective. The piece was inspired by a visit to Gainsborough Heritage Centre and uses objects from their collection to inspire storytelling.

The year is 1945 and things are slowly returning to the way they used to be. 

The way things have always been.

But too much has changed and the people of Gainsborough want to look forward, not back.

This project is part of the Gainsborough Literacy project which is delivered by Shooting Fish Theatre an funded by Children in Need, Heritage Lottery, West Lindsey District Council and DJS Arts. Young people participating in this project have been working with drama facilitator Michael McCredie since April to write this new piece of drama.

Performances will take place at 12 noon, 1pm and 2pm at Gainsborough Heritage Centre, 12 North Street, Gainsborough, DN21 2HS. Run time: 15 minutes.
