Tracks in Time
Alongside our last show as Hanby and Barrett, Sparks are Flying in Loco Town, we also ran an exhibition with audio interviews of ex workers sitting alongside photographic and exhibition materials that were created with community volunteers. But that wasn’t all; there was the church full of railway related artefacts; and the sing-alongs; and the talks; and the jam session in the pub.
This was a new venture for the company, and one that we are keen to repeat. We know that the material that we gather is of real interest to the communities and are increasingly looking for ways to share this alongside the theatre that we make.
