FOR THEATRE…

6 – 15 SEPTEMBER

WHAT'S ON THIS WEEK

Homegrown theatre company, Steelworks brings a brand new show to audiences in Stockton. The Fulstow Boys is based on a true story and kicks off when Sky News and the rest of the world’s press descend on a small village in Lincolnshire, asking why it doesn’t have a war memorial. A funny village caper that is both heart-breaking and hilarious. It is written by Steelworks Theatre Company founder Gordon Steel whose inaugural production, Grow Up Grandad was so successful that the company launched a tour the following year, receiving standing ovations across the north.
