In addition to Tramlines in July, for the last 4 or 5 years, local aspiring performers have come together to perform in Sheffield’s theatres a specially developed play with Sheffield stories. The show that I saw tonight, will be performed tomorrow and Saturday night.
It is a rich story. Possibly a little too ambitious, with all that was crammed in which distracted from it’s coherence. In echos of Everybody is Talking about Jamie there was a Transgender character in addition to a vicar, a ghost and asylum seekers. In all but name the opening of Sheffield’s Ikea store was commentated apart from it was called, Skandi.
There annual plays are certainly interesting and a great opportunity for locals; making it a worthy July tradition to continue.
Thank you all for your enteries. There has been enteries from ‘homes’ relatively near to me; Nottinham, UK is only an hour by train from me. Plus lots further away; Ontario, Canada, Singapore, Apple creek, Ohio, Oregon and North Carolina in United States.

It’s been a while since I’ve participated in Top 5 Tuesday since my blogging break but I couldn’t resist joining in with this week’s topic! As always, Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm and today the topic is Books I Want To Re-Read. I’m not a re-reader at all (I just don’t have time with all the unread books calling me!) but I often think about what books I’d like to lose myself in all over again.
Harry Potter – J. K. Rowling
Of course this would be first on my list! I adore everything about this series with all my heart and if I had infinite time to read I’d have this on a constant loop. I grew up in this world and I certainly haven’t grown out of it. Plus, with it being such a huge book series I’m bound…
