A 1940s punk-pop circus opera. 

Have you seen the ghost? The ghost of the airman? Plenty have. I wonder why he’s here, what he wants… 

It’s 1942 and where North Point Shopping Centre now stands is RAF Sutton on Hull, home to the Fabric Bashers – hundreds of women making the fabric for the barrage balloons floating over the Humber. 

 One still, starlit evening, Flight Lieutenant Frank Dobbs and Basher Edie Wilson lindyhop their way to love at the RAF dance. But wartime’s uncertain, and Frank’s about to begin a journey that’ll change their lives forever… 

 Forty years later, punk pop bangs through the estate and young punks Jimmy and Karen fight to stay together against all the odds. It ‘ant always been easy, but they’re meant for each other...aren’t they? 

 Circus, opera, dance and seven decades of music collide in this epic journey through the heart and history of Bransholme, the triumphs, loves, losses and laughs of the 1940’s to now. Grab your big coats and the people you love, and join us for sing-along anthems, soaring spectacle, and a hell of a lot of heart.  

Karen loves Jimmy, 4 eva and eva. 

Frank Dobbs loves Edie Wilson, Always.
