PREVIEW PERFORMANCE of 'THE BLACK STUFF':
Lioness are presenting a special preview of our debut show, which will be premiered in full in Doncaster at DN Festival
Rubber - a miraculous substance! But until Charles Goodyear came along, it was sticky and useless. He turned it into a product that revolutionised the world – but his journey was far from easy. Through theatre, art, humour, and song, “The Black Stuff” tells the dark true tale of how a bankrupt button-maker became one of the most important inventors of all time - and the terrible price he and his family paid for it.
This performance will be followed by a Q&A
with discussion steered by our 'Pride' regarding women's journey over the past 100 years, and the role women play in the arts today.
FREE ENTRY: A Pay As You Decide Event.
