The Cracked Pot

The Yorkshire Dales, 1810. In a small town, a family heirloom is smashed. Judge Adam is both judge and villain in the raucous farce of a court case that ensues. Under the watchful eyes of Lancastrian Judge Walter Clegg, the law is turned on its head in a chaotic hearing where Judge Adam uses every corrupt trick in the book, from blackmail to barefaced lies, in order to extricate himself from the increasingly damning evidence. Populated by a clutch of wickedly funny characters, The Cracked Pot is a riotous comedy set in deepest Yorkshire, positively crackling with northern wit and steeped in earthy satire on small town corruption.

Northern Broadsides' multi-award winning production promises all the fun and memorable characterisations that the company is celebrated for, topped by Barrie Rutter's performance as the cloven footed, foul-mouthed, physically-repellent-in-every-respect Judge Adam.
