Viva Arts and Community Group in Soham will bring ‘Brassed Off’ to life at the Performing Arts Centre from tomorrow for a three-night run.
The play by Paul Allen, which is inspired by Mark Herman’s screenplay, was performed on Thursday 9, Friday 10 and Saturday 11 November.
The play is set in 1994 in South Yorkshire, 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 from the Soham Comrades Band including Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez and Jerusalem, Brassed Off is a funny and heart-warming drama that reaches stirring heights. Passionate and inspiring.
The performances take place at 7.30pm each night. There is also a 2.30pm matinee on the Saturday due to additional demand.
Tickets, £10 each, are availabale from www.wegottickets.com or by calling the box office on 01353 722228.
