‘Time is as short as her skirt and she’s as high as her hair…because these are our men and they measure up in more ways than one.’

An extraordinary night of love, life and loss in a major new commission for our final season.

Follow Hull hero Lillian Bilocca and her crew of head scarfed women through The Guildhall, joining them in 1968 as they dare to speak out and take action to improve the safety conditions for their men at sea.

Witness the Three Day Millionaires’ riotous return home from the wet and wild west, and dance at the ghostly Silver Cod Ball, the trawler owners’ annual slap on the back. Become part of their story as it unfolds and immerse yourself in Hull’s fishing community. Celebrate the vivid and dangerous lives of its trawler men and unite against the feudal power of the ship owners.

Written by Maxine Peake, directed by Sarah Frankcom and Imogen Knight, and with an original live score by folk’s finest – The Unthanks, this unique site-specific production will take you on an unforgettable journey using music, storytelling, movement and performance to celebrate an inspirational period in Hull’s history and a force for change that resonated far beyond the city.

It’s time to tell the world.
