Oldham Coliseum, Queen's Theatre Hornchurch and Hull Truck Theatre fundraise together through streaming epic musical The Hired Man

Oldham Coliseum Theatre, Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch and Hull Truck Theatre and have today (10 June) announced that they will be streaming their epic and landmark 2019 revival of The Hired Man to raise vital funds for current and future creative projects, which together reach over 380,000 people a year, while their theatres are closed to the public. This much loved actor-musician revival played to national critical acclaim across the country, securing three Offie Award nominations and with Lauryn Redding a finalist for Best Female Performance in a Musical. Based on the stirring novel by Melvyn Bragg first published in 1969, The Hired Man was turned into a musical in 1984.

The production features a superb score of rousing foot stomping rhythms and soaring choruses by the award-winning composer Howard Goodall (Bend It Like Beckham, Love Story). With the support of The Really Useful Group Ltd, the premiere of the streaming will take place on Monday 15 June 2020 at 7.30pm, and will then be available for one week on the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch YouTube channel and via each of three theatres’ websites.
