Tuesday night (Nov 29) sees a triumphant homecoming for Northern Broadsides and York Theatre Royal’s brilliantly received revival production of J B Priestley’s comedy When We Are Married.

And it will run until December 10 at The Viaduct Theatre, Dean Clough, Halifax - the home of Northern Broadsides.

The play is set in 1908 in the town of Cleckleywyke in the West Riding, The Helliwells, the Parkers and the Soppitts are highly respected pillars of their community ... but not for much longer.

Married on the same day in the same chapel, they gather to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. The celebrations are short lived when they discover the vicar wasn’t licensed and they are actually not married. In fact, they have been living in sin for 25 years.

When We Are Married is directed by Barrie Rutter who is joined in the cast, by Sue Devaney - Dinnerladies and - Coronation Street; Steve Huison - The Full Monty, Coronation Street, Emmerdale; Kate Anthony - Coronation Street and Adrian Hood - Dinnerladies, the film Brassed Off and All Quiet on the Preston Front.

“When We Are Married is the quintessential Yorkshire comedy with an absurd plot overflowing with authentic attitudes of the day; fun for the cast as well as the audience,” said Barrie.
