In June and July, Oldham Coliseum presents The Hired Man in association with Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch and Hull Truck Theatre.

The revival of Melvyn Bragg and Howard Goodall’s British musical has already been nominated for three Off West End Theatre Awards during its run in Hornchurch.

Set in Cumbria in 1898, young married couple John and Emily have just moved to a new town to start their lives together. Whilst struggling to carve a living from the land, their story is one of love, betrayal, loyalty and community.

It runs from June 20 to July 6.
