The Hired Man


Acclaimed for its epic, nostalgic, funny book and rousing, romantic, award-winning score, THE HIRED MAN is arguably the finest new British musical of the last thirty years. Set against the backdrop of the Cumbrian lakes in the early years of the Twentieth century, it tells the timeless, moving story of a young married couple and their struggle to carve a living from the land, just as the traditional rhythms of English country life are being swept away by the gathering storm of war in Europe. It’s haunting, thrilling, stirring stuff. THE HIRED MAN is based on the much-loved novel by Melvyn Bragg, and brought to life by the heartbreakingly-beautiful music of Howard Goodall, the EMMY, BRIT and BAFTA award-winning composer of stage, film and TV scores.
