Northern Broadsides: Quality Street
From J.M. Barrie, the writer of Peter Pan, this delicious regency rom-com was such a sensation in its day that it gave its name to the UK’s most loved chocolates.
6 - 10 June
2h 35m (including interval)
Phoebe Throssel runs a school for unruly children on Quality Street.
Ten years since a tearful goodbye, an old flame returns from fighting Napoleon. But the look of disappointment on Captain Valentine’s face when he greets an older, less glamorous Phoebe, spurs our determined heroine to action.
She becomes the wild and sparkling Miss Livvy, a younger alter-ego who soon beguiles the clueless Captain. As their romance is rekindled, can she juggle both personas? Or will the deception scandalise the town and wreck any future with the man she loves?
Northern Broadsides revive their hit regency comedy, stirring in a good helping of Yorkshire wit from the retired workers of the Halifax factory where Quality Street have been proudly made since 1936. Think Bridgerton meets Inside the Factory.
