Melvyn Bragg book and narration

Howard Goodall and Melvyn Bragg’s powerful musical tale of labour and love receives its first major concert presentation in over 20 years, narrated by the author himself.

Set in the agricultural and industrial heartlands of Cumbria at the turn of the 20th century, The Hired Man follows the paths of John and Emily Tallentire as they go from two young lovers, setting off in married life together, to parents struggling to eke out an existence for their family as war looms across the continent.

A stellar West End cast, live orchestra and stunning projections promise to make this an unforgettable evening.

Concert Duration:
approx. 2 hours 20 minutes
