Meet The Makers Icebreaker
We're excited to say that rehearsals are now in full swing for our next homegrown production - and stage premiere - of The Ockerbys On Ice. And if you want the chance to meet the writer and director of the production and also some of the cast, why not come along to our Meet The Makers event on September 15? Meet The Makers is free and offers an opportunity to hear about the creative process behind the production and ask questions of Debbie Oates, Joe Sumsion and some of the actors. Debbie's play – The Ockerbys On Ice – runs at The Dukes from September 30-October 22 and is a heartwarming story about an ordinary couple who win a second chance at life, thanks to cryonic freezing. At the readthrough on Monday, those lucky enough to be present found the play to be funny yet poignant. Here's what some of them had to say: “I sobbed and laughed (sometimes at the same time) all the way through!” “The most thought-provoking play I’ve seen in years – it will have everyone gripped.” “This is just the readthrough – it’s going to be amazing!” Meet The Makers takes place from 6.30pm-7.30pm in The Round. Tickets are free but can be booked beforehand at The Dukes box office by ringing 01524 598500.
