Lakin McCarty and Mark Thomas in association with West Yorkshire Playhouse

Red Shed is the third part in a trilogy that started with the multi award-winning shows Bravo Figaro and Cuckooed. 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-winner Mark returns to where he first started to perform, a red wooden shed in Wakefield, the Labour club, to celebrate its 50th birthday. The show will involve the audience (in a nice way) to recreate the shed and its inhabitants. 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.
