Welcome to Barnsley.
‘’I like it here. It’s safe. It’s home.’’
When Donna discovers that her Dad has gone missing she tries to keep his struggling shop together as long as possible before anyone finds out. But with no clue to his whereabouts, it’s not long before she enlists the help of the town. With Louise, her easily distracted co-worker, Jamie a clumsy ‘Romeo’ and delivery boy and Derek, a pensioner with a motor mouth and a temperamental mobility scooter, Donna goes on the search for her missing Dad ‘Top Man’ Terry.
12MilesNorth are a new company passionate about creating engaging, contemporary theatre that tells the stories of real people and the lives they live.
‘Twelve Miles North of Sheffield’ is an accomplished debut for this theatre company and I feel convinced we will be hearing more from them.
