Venue details

Joan & Jimmy

Blaize Theatre

‘Joan & Jimmy’ tells the story of Joan Littlewood and Jimmy Miller (aka Ewan MacColl), standing among the rubble of 1945 post war Britain. Both are embarking on a career in radical political theatre, performing one-night stands across the north of England. Come meet the founder members of rural touring!

The pair founded Theatre Workshop in Kendal with a travelling troupe of storytellers and outlaws committed to the overthrow of the established order where the rich got richer and the poor got austerity – even then!

In 1952 they would part company. Joan and Theatre Workshop heading to London and Ewan to the folk music world. In the Theatre Workshop tradition, ‘Joan & Jimmy’ asks the audience to reach their own conclusions and take the ending of these stories and songs beyond the village hall and into their own lives.
