A magnificent chronicle of the 1960s and 70s in the North East of England, London and what was to become Zimbabwe, Our Friends in the North
charts a devastating defeat of left-wing aspirations. As the thirst for power fights it out with idealism, corruption takes root and a trail of victims is left in its wake. Spanning two decades and fourteen characters, the play sees this changing world through the aspirations and temptations of Tosca, Mary, Geordie and Nicky, four young people from Newcastle whose lives take very different paths. The production is hugely pertinent this year as another era of left-wing power enters an 'orderly transition' and New Labour endeavours to clean its slate.Performers Neil Armstrong, Rod Arthur, Christian Bradley, Sonia Beinroth, Craig Conway, Rob Culbertson, Bill Fellows, Andrew French, Mark Leadbetter, Tony Neilson, Neil Phillips, Joe Renton, Darren Tunstall, Tracey Wilkinson.
