The Shed Crew
21 September 2017 - 1 October 2017
Red Ladder Theatre Company supported by West Yorkshire Playhouse presents
THE SHED CREW
A stage play in verse by Kevin Fegan; adapted from the book URBAN GRIMSHAW AND THE SHED CREW by Bernard Hare
Hark back to the techno thumping, joy riding, glue-sniffing, dragon-chasing 90’s. Pounding beats, dirty streets, swirling haze and squalor – piss stained velour. Ashtrayland.
You weren’t in a gang, you were in a crew, and life was a drug-fuelled helter skelter.
It’s 20 years later, and tonight, fasten your seat belts. Best to travel light. Keep your eyes open and watch your back. But no worries, with this crew you’re one of us, you’re family, we’ll show you what ‘survival’ really means.
We are delighted that Leeds Central Library will be hosting a conversation with Rod Dixon (Artistic Director of Red Ladder Theatre Company) and Kevin Fegan (writer of the stage production THE SHED CREW) plus special guests.
