Beyond the End of the Road
Northern Heartlands, the Durham Great Place Scheme, has teamed with north-east theatre company November Club to bring the award-winning musical Beyond the End of the Road to County Durham. Written by Laura Lindow, the show interweaves the heart-warming stories of the residents of a fictional village called PLACE. Music and lyrics are by popular folk musician Katie Doherty and the show features a professional cast of 10 actors and musicians. The play has already won a clutch of awards. Last month the show won Best Performance of the Year in the acclaimed Journal Culture Awards. Northern Heartlands Community Facilitator Anna Collins, together with local artist Alison Curry, have been working in communities across Teesdale and Weardale over the past weeks to support local residents to take part in the show.

The final show at The Witham in Barnard Castle will conclude with a lively ceilidh and feature popular youth band Cream Tees who will entertain the audience.
