The Flannelettes at the King's Head Theatre
The King's Head Theatre will present The Flannelettes by Richard Cameron at their pub theatre venue from 13 May to 6 June with an official opening on 15 May 2015.
The play is described as a "hitting portrait of a Yorkshire mining village on the slide", infused with a sweet sound track of 60’s soul classics. Mike Bradwell will direct the production, returning to work with Cameron after directing 'The Glee Club' at The King’s Head in 1978.
The Flannelettes takes place in a women’s refuge in a small mining community devastated by the decline of the industry. ‘Special’ Delie is spending her summer holidays with her Aunty Brenda who runs the refuge, and keen to reform The Flannelettes, their Motown tribute act they have formed with George the pawnbroker who moonlights in drag.
The cast for the production includes Holly Campbell, Emma Hook, James Hornsby and Suzan Sylvester. It will feature musical direction by Wendy Gaddeon.
