Hull Truck Theatre is celebrated across the UK for making powerful theatre with a strong northern voice, and their latest show really packs a punch!
The third in their Hull Trilogy (the others beingÂ Dancing Through the ShadowsÂ andÂ The Gaul),Â Mighty AtomsÂ is set in The Six Bells, a local pub that has seen far, far better days.
The place is run by Nora (Judi Earl), a larger than life mother figure with a heart of gold, who is joined by cleaner Aneta (Maya Barcot) and former boxing champion, Taylor Flint (Caitlin Drabble).
These women have very different backgrounds and personalities, yet are equally unsatisfied with their current lives. From requiring funds to save the business, to being overeducated and underpaid, to struggling with resentment over lost glory, it seems that little will change for the inhabitants of this dreary watering hole.
Enter Lauren (Danielle Henry) and Jazz (Olivia Sweeney), an unlikely duo whose friendship is hard as nails, visiting The Six Bells for a boxercise session. They are shortly followed by Grace (Anna Doolan), whose name couldn't be more removed from her demeanour.Â<pFor the cheapest fares, no booking fees and free 4G Wi-Fi, book your tripÂ with Hull Trains today.
