A PLAY exploring the relationship between a theatre director and her husband is coming to Allendale.

Joan and Jimmy is a musical production based on the marriage of Joan Littlewood and her one time husband and partner Jimmy Miller – better known as folk singer and actor Ewan MacColl.

Littlewood devoted her life to community theatre and made it her mission to ensure the art form was more accessible to people in the north in the 50s and 60s.

The performance takes place tonight at Allendale Village Hall, with tickets available from the post office or on the door.
