Based on real events, Mixed Up North is a fiercely funny and moving new play about the difficulties of uniting divided racial communities in the Lancashire mill town of Burnley.
Trish leads a youth theatre group for Asian and White teenagers. As she struggles to share her artistic vision with a cast who think acting is “gay”, the compelling stories of the young stars unfold, along with a moving history of their town.
Take your seat at their final dress rehearsal... with tensions rising and mobiles ringing, will Trish bring her utopian dream to a triumphant conclusion?
