These Hills Are Ours

28th January

Tickets: £12.50, £11.50 concessions


Do you ever want to run away from it all?


Theatre maker Daniel Bye and Chumbawamba founder member Boff Whalley did exactly that.  They ran a series of routes from the centre of the city in which they found themselves, to the top of a nearby peak. But what were they really running from?


In story and in song, These Hills Are Ours is the story of what they found out on those journeys. It’s about escaping it all by running to wild places. Escaping the city, escaping your past, escaping the restrictions of upbringing or class or politics. It’s a celebration of wild places and our freedom to roam them.


A funny and moving performance about place, pride and the urge to get away.


Daniel Bye’s award-winning internationally touring theatre is always engaging, thought-provoking and entertaining. Boff Whalley, best-known as a founder member of Chumbawamba, writes heartfelt, catchy folk songs. This, their first theatre piece together, sees them moving into their most personal material yet. It’s a not-to-be-missed collaboration between two of Britain’s most celebrated artists in their own fields.


By Daniel Bye and Boff Whalley, produced by ARC Stockton

Co-commissioned by Beaford Arts, Eden Project, Lancaster Arts, Leeds Playhouse and Shoreditch Town Hall with support from artsdepot
