Setting The Stage

Hull Truck Theatre are Setting The Stage to welcome audiences back to the building this summer - working with Yorkshire-based theatre designer, Caitlin Mawhinney to bring the theatre building back to life ahead of re-opening to audiences this summer after a 15-month period of closure. 

The artistic intervention entitled Setting The Stagewill begin to grow over the coming weeks and be visible through the windows of Hull Truck Theatre’s iconic building on Ferensway for audiences and passers-by to enjoy.

The installation will include vibrant window displays using props and costumes from previous shows which will give a glimpse into theatre productions of years gone by… but with a twistTo symbolise key themes of growth, togetherness, hope, community and wellbeing, there will also be a flower-themed community engagement element to the project.
