Mark Thomas: The Red Shed

Wednesday 1st February, 2017

Macrobert Arts Centre

The comedian, activist and theatre-maker brings all of his formidable talents under one roof in this funny, raw and angry show.

A story of strikes, fights, dinner ladies and commies. Crap beer, great beer, burgers and burger slingers. Pickets, placards, friendship, love, history, dreams and above all remembering.

Part theatre, stand up, journalism, and activism, it's a story of the battle for hope and the survival of a small wooden shed that doubled up as community Labour club.
