“Middle Child’s gritty show, a terrific piece of popular theatre, is a love letter to the city of Hull itself and all its many inhabitants. It’s messy and it's heart-felt as it charts the years leading up to the Brexit vote (Hull voted overwhelmingly to leave) and asks: how did we get here? What’s great about it is that it doesn’t judge, it presents unfolding scenarios from differing perspectives and points of view and it give voice to ordinary people whose lives unfold in vivid technicolour even if those lives are ignored by those in Westminster.”
“Middle Child in association with Hull Truck Theatre and Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse present: An electrifying cabaret about the places we keep in our hearts”
Anna is discovering that Hull is not the place she thought it is. Steph sees her city changing and misses her dad. Both are looking for somewhere to call home and something to believe in. And our MC? She’s determined to bring people together again, the only way she knows how – karaoke!
Written by Maureen Lennon in collaboration with Nastazja Somers, with music by James Frewer and lyrics by Paul Smith, this is an electrifying cabaret about the places we keep in our hearts.
For a limited time only we are making available a recording of Us Against Whatever to stream via YouTube, filmed at Hull Truck Theatre on 2 April 2019. Watch it anytime between now and midnight on Monday 27 April.
If you enjoy the show please consider donating to our Hull Artists Coronavirus Fund, raising hardship money for freelancers in the city who’ve lost work due to the pandemic. All donations are gratefully received.
