Tim Chipping "Hooks" the audience!
The Hook is a co-production between Royal & Derngate and Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse, starring the babblificent Tim Chipping as Meathead.
To mark the centenary of legendary playwright Arthur Miller’s birth, Northampton’s Royal & Derngate and Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse have co-produced the original ‘play for the screen’ which opens this Friday, June 5th!
Written 60 years ago but never performed, the dockyards of Brooklyn’s epic waterfront will come alive on the Royal stage for the extraordinary story of Marty Ferrara, a longshoreman who challenges the mobsters and gangs of ’50s New York and takes a stand against the corruption he witnesses from the authorities who control the docks.
The story of a close-knit community grappling with a world of crime and punishment, of changing industry and immigration from abroad, The Hook is a study in integrity and betrayal, charting one man’s struggle for meaningful change.
