Huntingdon Youth Theatre is excited to announce that tickets are now on sale for ‘Cable Street’; a specially commissioned play by the National Theatre Connections.
The performances will begin at 7:45 pm at the Commemoration Hall on 2nd, 3rd & & 4th March 2022. The doors and bar will open at 7:00 pm.
One of the reasons we chose Cable Street is its close association with a member of the group, who had relatives living in the area during the troubles. This has added to the interest of our talented cast.
We are only partway through our Connections festival journey. We will be performing in Norwich’s Garage Theatre at the beginning of May.
Written by Lisa Goldman, Cable Street is about two girls growing up in London’s Jewish east end in the 1930s. Leah and Kitty are blood sisters, best friends, and more… But they get caught up in the political turmoil caused by Oswald Mosley’s fascist Blackshirts. As their passion and the political tensions grow, the forces ensnaring them can only get tighter and tighter until something snaps.
