I just can't wait to be in Northampton...
60 Miles by Road or Rail returns, bigger and better, following its celebrated preview in September 2018.
It’s 1968 and Northampton is on the verge of great change: it is becoming a ‘New Town’. The Northampton Development Corporation has been established. An advertising jingle is soon to be re-released as a pop record. But as thousands of families arrive from London, and many much-loved buildings are demolished, some are concerned that Northampton’s identity is starting to slip away…
60 Miles By Road Or Rail brings Northampton’s past and present crashing together to celebrate our town at a time when austerity, and uncertainty, threatens to pull it apart.
60 Miles by Road or Rail was scheduled to return to Royal & Derngate in October 2020.
Due to COVID-19 this has been rescheduled to 2021. More information to follow.
Praise for the Preview
“It is a new piece of drama that is referencing a very current political crisis in Northampton but also telling the town a new story about itself. It’s an amazingly dynamic achievement. You can’t help feeling that 60 Miles by Road or Rail is so good it deserves to evolve a bit more and be seen a lot more. Who knows what may be possible. It turns out 60 Miles by Road or Rail is an incredible journey.”
