fingersmiths in co-production with The New Wolsey Theatre present John Godber's

Up 'n' Under

Fri 23 - Sat 24 March  2018

Sat Matinee 2.30pm

The Wheatsheaf Arms rugby team, the laughing stock of Castleford’s Amateur Rugby League 7-a-Side tournament have never won a game, don’t have seven players and spend more time in the pub than on the pitch.  With just 5 weeks to go, our hero coach Arthur has to convince them they can beat the mighty Cobblers Arms, but first he has to work out how to communicate with them…

John Godber’s award winning comedy, Up ’n’ Under, is given fingersmiths’ spin with a cast of Deaf and hearing actors using British Sign Language and spoken English to delight all audiences.

Listen to the Audio Introduction here 

Praise for fingersmiths work:

“Extraordinary practice that transforms contemporary classics for a 21stC audience”

“a production that sharpens your hearing by making you see language”
