Show Information

Red Shed is the third part in a trilogy that started with the multi award winning shows Bravo Figaro and Cuckooed.

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.

Multi award winner Mark returns to where he first started to perform, a red wooden shed in Wakefield, the labour club, to celebrate its 50th birthday. The show will involve the audience (in a nice way) to recreate the shed and its inhabitants. Part theatre, stand up, journalism, activism it’s the story of the battle for hope and the survival of a community in a small wooden shed.

★★★★ “The show will still leave even the most laissez-faire Thatcherite Tory with food for thought and a reminder as to how deep the scars of that era run” THE TELEGRAPH

★★★★★ “An intense and moving masterpiece… it really is a breath-taking performance” WHATS ON LONDON

★★★★★ “One of Britain's greatest storytellers…beautifully-paced and structured…a passionate humanity that surpasses most other work at the Fringe" THE SCOTSMAN
