Motherland - 2014

We opened our 2014/15 season with a production of Steve Gilroy's 'Motherland' in The Assembly Rooms, a verbatim piece of theatre that tells the stories of women from the North East with warmth, humour and candour. Taken from a series of real-life interviews, we hear the stories of mothers, wives, sisters and girlfriends whose lives have been shaken to their cores by the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
