‘The Hired Man’ is the musical story of an emotional love triangle that takes us to the heart of Cumbrian life during the cataclysmic events that took place at the turn of the last century. It tells the timeless, moving story of a young married couple and their struggle to make a living from the land, just as the gathering storm of war in Europe threatens to disrupt their lives. Based on the novel by Melvyn Bragg, this award winning musical is highly acclaimed for its nostalgic and beautiful score.
Vertigo Theatre is a very large, youth work based community drama group which is run by a committee of young people and facilitated by the South Lanarkshire Youth, Family and Community Learning Service. It gives access for young people aged 8-25, from across South Lanarkshire, to high quality drama activity delivered in age appropriate groups. Many young people who have come through ‘Vertigo Theatre’ over the years have gone on to study theatre and music based subjects at accredited drama and music schools and colleges and are doing well within the profession as actors, stage managers and musicians.
