World Premiere. "In these times of ours, though concerning the exact year there is no need to be precise, a boat of dirty and disreputable appearance, with two ?gures in it ?oated on the [let's say, Humber] ?as an autumn evening was closing in." - So begins Charles Dickens' Our Mutual Friend, which he wrote in 1865. Suppose you were all young, poor, barely scraping a living, some of you homeless... Suppose one of you, a mutual friend, has just been pulled, drowned, from your local river... Suppose you wanted to let the world know what killed them... And then suppose that one of you was, at that time, reading this Charles Dickens novel about friendship, kindness, cruelty, money, lack of money, business and piles of seemingly useless dust, which somehow seems to be all about your mutual friend. Suppose you just got up and told us the whole story... The city is Hull. The river is the Humber. The time? Can you actually tell whether it is 1865 or 2017?Producer Hull Truck Youth Theatre. Producer Hull 2017. Adapted by Bryony Lavery (from the novel by Charles Dickens). Director Tom Bellerby.
