CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
In a small town, somewhere in America, a girl and a boy are playing dare. They're running the Trestle at Pope Lick Creek: racing the train, beating the clock. He's Dalton Chance, fifteen years old and an open book. She's Pace Creagan, seventeen, brimful of adventure, fearless and feared. To Dalton she's irresistible: a curiosity and an outsider. To Pace, he's a challenge even greater than the train. But Dalton and Pace live in a desperate world of betrayed promises. Dalton's family struggles to secure a future, which looks increasingly bleak. Pace's strange ways provoke mistrust, and stir suspicion that she's responsible for the town's greatest tragedy. Performers Eric Barlow, Julia Dalkin, Pauline Knowles, Iain Macrae.
