A dark comedy

Very Hard Times
Very Hard Times

DARK comedy Very Hard Times by Publick Transport is the latest show to come to North Lincolnshire as part of the Livelincs rural touring scheme.

The performance will be taking place at Wroot Village Hall on Saturday November 19 at 7.30pm.

Publick Transport tackles the thorny issue of economic hardship with the distorted melodrama in this dark, brooding reflection on the banking crisis.

In their over-eagerness to be zeitgeisty, a trio of performers present the topical story of an impoverished couple’s downfall at the hands of a loan shark.

However with personal differences getting in the way, an almost rip-roaring tale of good versus evil gradually changes into a study of theatrical incompetence.

The show is suitable for adults and children aged 11 years and over. For more information, contact 01302 771802.

Livelincs is the rural touring scheme for North Lincolnshire and is funded by Arts Council England and North Lincolnshire Council.

Councillor John Briggs, cabinet member for Asset and Estate Management, Sport, Leisure and Culture, said: “Livelincs brings a wide variety of theatre, dance and music to rural communities throughout the year that suit a range of tastes and ages.

“Very Hard Times performed by Publick Transport is an unusual comedy and has had some excellent reviews. ”
