Hull Truck Announce ‘Christmas Cracker’ Showing this December



Hull Truck Theatre have announced their new Christmas production, Prince Charming’s Christmas Cracker which is now on sale along with John Godber’s new show Sunny Side Up! which will take to the stage this November.

With many theatres around the country, including those here in East Yorkshire, still closed due to the pandemic, it’s exciting to see Hull Truck announce these new shows to take place this year.

Prince Charming’s Christmas Cracker is a brand-new show written & directed by Hull Truck Theatre Artistic Director Mark Babych for 2020. The show, suitable for audiences age 5+, offers a fun, festive, fairy-tale adventure, sprinkled with humour, unexpected surprises and a hint of magic, whilst offering the safety of social distancing measures.

“We are thrilled to be welcoming back audiences and artists to our theatre again after what has been a challenging year for us all, with work designed to lift our spirits and bring us back together again. The team have been working hard to ensure that safety remains our top priority and that our audiences can once more enjoy the magic of live performance with work from the beating heart of Hull and beyond.”

Mark Babych, Hull Truck Theatre Artistic Director

Following a week at the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough Sunny Side Up! will play for a week in November to a socially distanced audience in The Heron.

The show follows the hilarious and moving account of a struggling Yorkshire coast B&B and the people who run it. Written by John Godber, Sunny Side Up! was created by the Godber family as they isolated together as a social bubble over the Spring and Summer of 2020 and the cast will include John Godber, Martha Godber and Jane Thornton and will be stage managed by Elizabeth Godber.

“What a fantastic opportunity to bring my new play back to Hull Truck where it all began for me! This social comedy set on the East Yorkshire coast will ring bells for anyone, who, like us, have been isolating at home and finding new walks in our region. Sunny Side Up is a hymn to where we live and to the tenacity of the people who work our seaside towns!”

John Godber, Director of Sunny Side Up!
