Watch the Live Experience on 15 March or On Demand from 16 - 28 March
A Sheffield Theatres Production
By Chris Bush
"Rubbish", that was mum's verdict. "Drop a nuke round here and no-one would even notice the difference."
An Olympic hopeful. A political car crash. The fallout from a fictional nuclear winter. Join us for stories of solidarity and survival from the Steel City, sound tracked by new versions of classics from some of Sheffield's most celebrated artists.
From writer Chris Bush (Standing at the Sky’s Edge), The Band Plays On is a rousing night of extraordinary tales and live music. Funny, moving and often unexpected, these episodes from our past might start to show us a way forward.
Our cast is Jocasta Almgill (Rent, & Juliet), Anna-Jane Casey (Annie Get Your Gun, Flowers for Mrs Harris), Sandra Marvin (Showboat, Waitress), Maimuna Memon (Standing at the Sky’s Edge, Jesus Christ Superstar) and Jodie Prenger (A Taste of Honey, Oliver!).
Either join us for the Live Experience and watch along at 7.30pm on Monday 15 March, or purchase your pass for 3 days access at a time that suits you from Tuesday 16 until Sunday 28 March.
