Brassed Off

Brassed Off

Presented by The Touring Consortium Theatre Company and York Theatre Royal
Based on the Screenplay by Mark Herman
Adapted by Paul Allen

The truth is, I thought it mattered - I thought that music mattered. But does it? ….. Not compared to how people matter.” Danny, Brassed Off

JUST ANNOUNCED:  There will be a free talk following the Thursday matinee performance....
IN CONVERSATION WITH PAUL ALLEN the playwright, journalist and BBC radio presenter who adapted Brassed Off for the stage from the original film.  The talk will take place in the auditorium immediately following the play.  The talk is free to anyone with a ticket to the performance.

The Everyman is part of this consortium of theatres. We are proud to present this production of Brassed Off directed by Damian Cruden (director of Olivier Award winning 'Best Entertainment' The Railway Children.

It is 1992, Grimley Colliery faces the threat of closure and the future of the brass band seems uncertain. With the miners torn between redundancy packages and the picket lines, band-leader Danny’s hopes of winning the national brass band competition seem like a distant dream. But the arrival of flugelhorn-playing Gloria brings hope, romance and controversy to the Yorkshire brass band on the brink of collapse.

Featuring rousing live music including Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez and Jerusalem, Brassed Off is a funny and heart-warming drama that reaches stirring heights as Gloucester's Flowers Brass Band performs the final scene, set in the Royal Albert Hall, live on the stage of the Everyman.

The cast is led by John McArdle. A highly respected and accomplished actor his credits include Billy Corkhill in Brookside, Firm Friends, All The Small Things, Merseybeat and Waterloo Road.

Passionate and inspiring - a celebration of human endeavour and community spirit in triumph against all the odds.

"Damian Cruden's production neither softens nor sentimentalises"
"John McArdle fully possesses the role"
"emotive impact of a large ensemble blazing through music such as Rodrigo's Conceierto de Aranjuez"
- The Guardian
