Hindle Wakes

Hindle Wakes

Venue: 
Upstairs at the Gatehouse
Location: 
Fringe

It is 'wakes week' in the Lancashire cotton town of Hindle, when the factories close and just about everyone goes on holiday. The Hawthorns are waiting for their daughter Fanny, a feisty young mill worker, to come home from Blackpool, where she's been staying with her friend Mary - or so she has told them. When the true story surfaces, three families are thrown into turmoil.

Hindle Wakes by Tower Theatre Company

The Tower Theatre amateur dramatic company will present Hindle Wakes by Stanley Houghton at the Upstairs at the Gatehouse Theatre in Highgate, north London, from 28 June to 2 July 2016.

Written in 1910, and influenced by the emergence of the 'New Woman' and the plays of Ibsen, it was one of the earliest dramas to feature a female working-class protagonist. Now widely acclaimed as a classic, there have been at least eight film and TV versions of the play and it was recently seen at the Finborough Theatre.
