The third part in the multi-award-winning trilogy of shows.

The Red Shed completes the trilogy of shows which included Bravo Figaro and Cuckooed. It’s a story of strikes, dinner ladies and commies. Crap beer, great beer, burgers and burger slingers. Pickets, placards, friendship, love, history, dreams and above all

Mark returns to where he first performed, a red wooden shed in Wakefield, the labour club, to celebrate its 50th birthday. Part theatre, stand-up, journalism, activism, it’s the story of the battle for hope and the survival of a community.

Lakin McCarthy and Mark Thomas in association with West Yorkshire Playhouse, directed by Joe Douglas.


"Thomas is a terrific performer and raconteur… funny, raw and angry” 
The Guardian 4**** 

"One of Britain's greatest storytellers…beautifully-paced and structured…a passionate humanity that surpasses most other work at the Fringe" The Scotsman 5*****
