Back in September when we interviewed Mark Newton (Director at Sound Channel/Canal Mills), he was pretty clear on the mission for the venue; to not only bring quality clubbing to Leeds but also to host a wide spectrum of creative events. Yesterday, Canal Mills announced details of the their first non-club event, a theatre production from BackBreak Theatre.
BackBreak Theatre are a brand new theatre company coming out of Leeds with an emphasis on entertaining without pretensions. After three sell out performances of their debut show ‘Only The Penitent Man Shall Pass’ earlier in 2012, the group are back to present the 1980s adaptation of one of Shakespeare’s most loved comedies, ‘Two Gentlemen of Verona’.
‘Two Gents‘ tells the tale of two emigrating friends, one a struggling funk DJ, two stunning girls and two morons. Expect a convincing 80s backdrop with Kool and the Gang, Ghetto Blasters, Shell Suits, The Clash, Jean Jackets, Vinyl turntables and more setting the scene.
As previously mentioned BackBreak Theatre sold out all three shows of it’s first production. Couple that with this being the first event of it’s type at the very popular, Canal Mills and we can expect tickets to be in high demand for both shows (23rd and 24th January 2013).
