THE HIRED MAN begins at the turn of the 20th Century when young newlyweds, John & Emily, start a fresh life in the Cumbrian farmlands where they can raise a family and fulfil John's passion of working the land. The joys of hiring fairs and village festivities begin to pale in the face of life's struggles and soon Emily is warmed by the attentions of the local heartthrob, Jackson, with painful consequences.


Leaving for town life with their two children, the bonds of the family are further tested by the challenges of colliery life and the ultimate tragedies brought by the Great War. THE HIRED MAN is a powerful celebration of the British survival spirit and a heart-rending testament to the enduring power of love.
When THE HIRED MAN was originally produced in the West End by Andrew Lloyd Webber it was hailed as the "British Les Miserables" for its soaring music, epic story and emotional heart. It won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Musical, the TMA Award for Best Musical and earned four Olivier Award nominations.
Hessle Theatre Company's production follows their recent sell-out production of the musical 'Sister Act' at Hull New Theatre. The Company's previous productions at Hull Truck include 'Little Shop of Horrors', 'Abigail's Party' and last year's high-acclaimed production of 'Into the Woods'.
