Cognitiv Member Special Event: John Godber’s 'Poles Apart'

Friday 11th September, 2015
From 6:30pm

Wakefield Theatre Royal
Cognitiv Visit to Wakefield Theatre Royal

The Theatre Royal is an oasis of artistic calm, equality and sensitivity, but when the scaffolders from hell descend upon the thespians, the masks slip and the curtain comes down.

Phil, Fat Glen and Polish Jan, are on task and finish as they deliver a breathless rant on life, art and sausage sarnies in a desperate effort to mend the leaking roof.

In this new comedy, John Godber examines the role of the theatre in the life of the working man and the role of the working man in the life of the theatre, and asks, are they Poles Apart?

Wakefield Theatre Royal have invited Cognitiv members to visit the theatre on 11th September and watch the new John Godber comedy, Poles Apart.
