Hull Truck Theatre's 40th birthday celebrations begin in earnest with a very special duo of plays, performed by an ensemble of actors. The 40 Ensemble will perform two plays which encapsulate what Hull Truck is all about - producing plays by living writers, rooted in their community.

The plays are performed separately, on different days.
