Lucy Hind: The Sheffield Mysteries Press Night

Date - 16 July, 2014, All News Press Nights Theatre

Lucy Hind is movement director for The Sheffield Mysteries at Sheffield Crucible which holds its press night this evening.

A single day, taking us from dawn till dusk, from the beginning of time to the ends of the earth, from Stannington to Woodhouse.

Inspired by and responding to the medieval mystery cycles, The Sheffield Mysteries offer a frank and funny celebration of the human spirit, with a distinctly Yorkshire flavour. Performed by around one hundred actors, singers, dancers and musicians from Sheffield People’s Theatre (Lives in Art, 20 Tiny Plays About Sheffield).
