Rising Hull theatre company take to the London stage

An emerging theatre company from Hull will take their latest production to a stage in the heart of central London next week.

With the help of the UK City of Culture 2017 team and Hull City Council’s Arts Development unit, the cast of local theatre company ‘Silent Uproar’ will perform Pig - their latest production - at the New Diorama Theatre London.

Written by playwright Alex Oates, “Pig” is a response to anonymous interviews with both serving police officers and those coming into contact with the force. A dark comedy with live music, it looks at how the world either side of the thin blue line isn't simply black and white, but many shades of grey.

Alex Mitchell, Artistic Director at Silent Uproar, said: “This is an amazing opportunity for us! It has been fantastic working with both Hull City Council and Hull City of Culture 2017 as our work is made for and in Hull. It's very humbling that the city and its representatives are helping us to make a big fuss down south in the big smoke. This will allow us to help wave the Hull flag in the capital whilst building new audiences who wouldn't have previous access to our work.”
