‘An Honorary Yorkshireman’

A HILARIOUS comedy tale of a legendary Northern novellist is coming to Gainsborough.

The James Herriot Story - An Honorary Yorkshireman is a light-hearted one-man comic theatre show from Badapple Theatre.

This play is written and directed by Kate Bramley (formerly of Hull Truck Theatre) by permission of the family of the late Alf Wight.

Set in a Yorkshire pub in the farming heyday of the 1940s, The James Herriot Story sets off the early biography of the late Alf Wight - better known under his pen name of James Herriot - against a myriad of local characters inspired by the All Creatures Great and Small novels.

Actor Johnny McPherson gives an upbeat and entertaining performance as the local vet comes down from Glasgow and finds himself in an altogether different world, giving what is said to be a highly poignant yet funny look at one of England’s best-loved writers.

Badapple Theatre Company presents The James Herriot Story - An Honorary Yorkshireman at Trinity Arts Centre on Saturday 7th May at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £10 and available by calling 01427 676655 or by visiting www.trinityarts.co.uk.
