Two hard-hitting, topical and dynamic pieces of theatre, top comedy and music from favourite artists will kick off the new season at Square Chapel arts centre, Halifax, in September. Certain to be a talking point is Theatre Ad Infinitum’s award-winning ‘Ballad of the Burning Star’ which was a sell-out success at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013 and has been on tour round the UK this spring. A unique piece of theatre, the musical play by Nir Paldi is the story of one Jewish boy’s struggle to come to terms with the conflict raging in his homeland of Israel, told in a daring, satirical and provocative way. It arrives at Square Chapel arts centre on Thursday, September 25, at 8pm. The following night, Friday, September 26, also at 8pm, ‘The Rain That Washes’ will tell the true story of a 14-year-old boy growing up in turbulent Zimbabwe.
Also in September there will top comedy from Rob Newman with his new show ‘New Theory of Evolution’ (September 13). Musical treats in the month ahead include visits by My Sweet Patootie on September 19 at 8pm, the Orchestra of Square Chapel on September 21 and veteran British folk roots artist Rod Clements accompanied by Ian Thomson on double bass on September 28.
