Mark Thomas - The Red Shed

Please note: this show takes place at Theatre Royal Wakefield, not at The Red Shed.

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-winning comedian and writer Mark Thomas returns to Wakefield to celebrate the 50th birthday of the red wooden shed, the Labour club where he first started to perform; involving the audience (in a nice way) to recreate the shed and its inhabitants on Theatre Royal Wakefield’s stage.

Part theatre, stand up, journalism and activism, it’s the story of the battle for hope and the survival of a community in a small wooden shed.
