CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.

About the Show/Event

Carrying David
Find the best Carrying David play tickets at Tyne Theatre and Opera House, Newcastle upon Tyne. A compelling story of mental and physical courage, and the love that only brothers can understand. Glenn McCrory's rise from iron and coal scarred Annfield Plain, County Durham, to become the North East's only World Boxing Champion, leaps straight from the pages of The Boy's Own comic. A magnetic, articulate and charismatic character, his story is an inspiration for anyone who aspires to success. But very few know the real truth behind his rise to stardom. Carrying David is a remarkable dramatisation of the McCrory family, as seen through the eyes of Glenn's foster brother David, severely handicapped with a muscle wasting disease. Not expected to survive to fourteen, he defied all medical convention to enjoy life until he died at twenty nine. Powerless to move or speak through this unforgiving disease, he brought incredible love and joy into the lives of everyone he touched. Glenn and David were spiritually as one and whilst Glenn physically carried him as a young man, it was David's immense courage, humour and determination to live, that inspired Glen to become World Champion.
Approximate runtime 120minutes (including any interval).
