The Preston Bill

7 Feb 2017

A story from The North. The story of a life. The story of our lives.

The Preston Bill is the tale of one man and his place in the world, set against the turbulent backdrop of 80 years of socio-economic change in the north of England.

Award-winning theatre maker Andy Smith last appeared at Brighton Festival in 2014 in his collaboration with Tim Crouch, what happens to the hope at the end of the evening. The second of two shows Andy is bringing to this year’s Festival, The Preston Bill is told in his trademark down-to-earth style.
