71 Coltman Street Syndicate

71 Eshot 2

We hope you are as excited as we are about 71 Coltman Street. With such a renowned playwright as Richard Bean researching the founding of Hull Truck Theatre, the show will capture and celebrate the very special ethos of this unique company. 

For the first time we are offering a unique opportunity to invest in our work onstage during our anniversary year – this is your chance to play an integral role and do your bit for the theatre that’s special to you. 

Join our 71 Coltman Street Syndicate and learn more about the show, getting closer to the work at each stage of the process, from initial designs, to first rehearsals to the first performance. 

We’ve put together a range of insider events so that you can see exactly how the show comes together – commissioning and writing the script, design insights, experiencing the special atmosphere of the first reading, behind the scenes rehearsals, culminating in the excitement of press night and 50th anniversary celebrations

You’ll get to meet the team sharing their creative vision, gain insight from our technical experts into the challenges of realising those ideas and bringing the show to the stage, as well as meeting the performers.   

Most of all, you will know you’re investing in the magic of theatre and be able to see the huge impact you’ve had for your special theatre.  To mark our thanks, you’ll be prominently acknowledged as a key donor, and your benefits package will include tickets, VIP events and social events with like-minded fellow supporters.

Syndicate events (online and in person) will include: 

  • Writer Richard Bean and Director Mark Babych in conversation about commissioning and writing 71 Coltman Street (online)
  • Design insights and model showing (online)
  • Welcome, Company “meet and greet” and first read-through of the script
  • Working rehearsal visit
  • Set and workshop tour with technical team
  • Supper with cast, crew and fellow donors
