WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Award winning theatre maker Andy Smith presents a new piece of theatre telling a story from the north. The story of a life. The story of our lives. Andy Smith, who is known for his close collaboration with writer and actor Tim Crouch, recounts the life of a man called Bill using just a chair and ukulele. Starting in 1935, it takes in his national service, marriage, working life, union actively, retirement and his eventual death. The Preston Bill examines the ideas of social change and political rhetoric using verbatim political speeches through the decades, and asks how world events affect one person, and how one person might try to make a difference in the world.
