The voyage of The Good Hope
is a journey on which the life of the entire community depends. A storm rages, the women and children wait ashore, the boat follows the Greenland catch. The story has been relocated to the Yorkshire fishing community of Whitby in 1900. A poetic account of the fisherman's life, The Good Hope
hasn't been performed in the UK for more than 50 years and is rediscovered at a time when the fishing industry is again in a time of struggle.Performers Frances de la Tour, Tom Georgeson, Kenneth Anderson, Diane Beck, Emma Bird, Edward Clayton, Chris Coe, Alan Dunn, Charlotte Emmerson, Charlie Hart, William MacBain, Steve Nicolson, John Normington, Robert Oates, Trevor Ray, Sheila Reid, Iain Robertson, John Tams, Graeme Taylor, Keith Thompson, Linda Thompson, Howard Ward.
