We’re super excited to announce another new show for 2012…

With our friends at Hull Truck we’re co-producing the world premiere of Matt Hartley‘s electrifying and moving new play 65 MILES.

The production will open at Hull Truck on 1 February, directed by George and starring Ian Bleasdale, Craige Els, Becci Gemmell, Alan Morrissey and Katie West.

I don’t even have a photo. Every girl I see could be her. You’d know yer own child if they walked past wouldn’t you?

Sixty Five Miles. The distance between Hull and Sheffield. The distance between a man and the daughter he’s never met.

Pete and Rich are two very different brothers. Reunited after nine years, both are seeking forgiveness. Rich needs to confront ex-girlfriend Lucy, and the shadows of his recent past. Pete’s search is for the one woman in his life he has never known, his daughter.

They soon discover that – even separated by sixty five miles – people never forget.

We’re thrilled to be working with Matt, who wrote for COME TO WHERE I’M FROM last year in Sheffield, and whose blog about last week’s Jersey residency you can read here.

And we welcome a stellar cast to the PP rehearsal room:

George is working with a crack team of creatives with the brilliant Amy Cook designing, lighting by Tim Deiling – who’s previously worked with PP on THE 8TH and our A Play, A Pie and a Pint season – and Ed Lewis on sound.

And we’re thrilled to again be working with Andrew and his brilliant team at Hull Truck after our lovely visit with LOVE, LOVE, LOVE earlier this year.

Full details of the production are here. We can’t wait.
