Tonight ARC will be premiering a new drama from a dynamic and innovative playwright, who also happens to be an avid Boro season ticket holder, Gordon Steel's The Fulstow Boys kicks off at 7.30pm (Thursday 6th September)

The Fulstow BoysAward-winning writer Gordon Steel’s brand new play, The Fulstow Boys has been produced in association with South Shields’ The Customs House and is a powerful, poignant, and hilarious play based on a true story. A slice of history is exposed under the theatre lights and served up to a 21st century audience.

The Fulstow Boys is based on a true story but seen through the eye of Gordon Steel's lens.

When Sky News and the rest of the world’s press descend on a small village in Lincolnshire, all hell breaks loose as they ask: Why doesn’t the village have a war memorial, and what are they going to do about it?

Determined to right a wrong that has been hanging over Fulstow since the First World War, the tenacious Nicola Pike leads the village committee in making a decision that threatens to tear the community apart: but Graham is desperate to cure his constipation; Maurice’s back is playing up; and Moira is furious that someone else has been asked to make the chocolate cake at the forthcoming fete.

Set across two time frames, the tale of a village’s monumental decision is both heart-breaking and hilarious.

Steelworks Theatre Company is based on Teesside. It was founded in 2015 by playwright Gordon Steel with the aim of becoming a mid-scale touring theatre company.

So many of you will have revelled in Gordon Steel's plays over the twenty years since Dead Fish won a Fringe First in 1993. Since then, Gordon has written and directed many plays for Hull Truck including Like a Virgin, Albert Nobbs, Studs, and A Kick in the Baubles, many of which have been published.

Steelworks Theatre Company's inaugural production Grow Up Grandad was so successful that the Company launched a tour the following year, receiving standing ovations across the North. It has also been published by Joseph Weinberger.

The Fulstow Boys starts tonight at 7.30pm and continues at Arc until Saturday 15th September. It then goes off on tour around the north.
