Cast of upcoming play descend on Shibden Hall

The past came to life at Shibden Hall today, as the cast of the Northern Broadsides production of ‘She Stoops to Conquer’ filmed the trailer for their latest play.

Dressed in period clothing, the cast got into the spirit of the era as they posed for a photocall in the iconic building.

Hannah Edwards, who plays Kate Hardcastle in the production, said: “It’s really nice to be here, we’re putting on the costumes for the first time today and it’s going to feel really real when we are swanning around in costume.”

Christopher Southwell, Visitor Service Coordinator, added: “Its nice to see Shibden Hall been used to its full potential.

“It’s the perfect backdrop for this production.”

The play will open at The Viaduct Theatre, Halifax from August 29 to September 6, before touring round the country until December.
