About This Show

A traditional Cumbrian “Merry Neet” with a twist; an evening of strange stories and spectral songs from Obscura Theatre’s new folk musical A Shanty for an Atomic Town. Part-folk gig, part-storytelling event, hear brand new songs and stories inspired by events past, present and future on West Cumbria’s nuclear coast. In songs and stories from A Shanty for an Atomic Town, four actor-musicians explore the rippling Promethean effect that the dawn of nuclear has had on humanity, on the country, and on a small seaside community in one north-westerly corner.
