This was posted by Janet Russell on Facebook. I'm sure it will be of interest to some Yorkshire Mudcatters:-
Jim Woodland's play about Joan Littlewood and Ewan McColl (or Jimmy Miller) is on in Keighley at the Central Hall, Alice Street on the Wednesday 20th of March at 7.30pm. It's about a very specific time in their lives, before Joan went to stay in London, and before Jimmy became Ewan. There are songs! To book Keighley tickets see "Joan & Jimmy" on Eventbrite, (it would help us to know how many are coming beforehand) or come to Central Hall at 7pm to get tickets on the door £10 and £8 concessions.

The link for buying advance tickets is here.

Bugger! I have been roped in to work that night :-( I could have bused it to there and back easily.

Saw Janet at Skipton Folk Club a couple of weeks back though. She was very good.

Joan and Jimmy is now on tour. It's an excellent production, with a cast of four.

The principal characters are Ewan MacColl, Joan Littlewood, Jean Newlove and Gerry Raffles. Ewan battles against Gerry Raffles, his old persona Jimmy Miller and the Military Police too. The play ends as they set off to make their mark in London.

Jim Woodland wrote the excellent script and contributed the songs too, just as Ewan MacColl once did.

Qlooks interesting, but too far away to attend. Maybe something that could be put on at this year's Whitby Folk Week?
By the way, I nearly bypassed this thread: the thread title doesn't exactly give many clues. In rhe end, curiosity won!

Saw it at Bowes. Booked before I saw this. Worth seeing but not worth seeing twice.
Yes might be of interest at Whitby thought it isn't folky. There were no snippets of plays they did.

'the thread title doesn't exactly give many clues'
Yes. Its the title of the play.
(JHW not to blame for either)

"Yes, it's the title of the play".
Yes, I realised that AFTER opening the thread (which I nearly didn't) - but when you only see the very short thread title, it maybe needs to send out a bit more of a message to get people to open the thread in the first place. Not blaming you, JHW!
Maybe something like "Joan and Jimmy- new play with music about Joan Lttlewood and Jimmy Miler" - could a kindly Mudelf possibly expand it?
