For two nights only, The Piece Hall in Halifax is preparing to host a world premiere in a
spectacular evening of entertainment on a huge scale.
Telling a story of a mother and child against the world, Zara has a cast of over 100 actors, an army tank, cherry pickers and 4x4s; 3D illuminations will be projected on to the heritage building making it both a backdrop to the performance and central to the story.
Nicky Chance Thompson, Chief Executive of The Piece Hall says: “We are really excited to host this world premiere ahead of its London dates. It’s great news for us and great for the North of England. The Piece Hall has hosted a vast array of events since it re-opened – from contemporary music concerts to intimate site-specific performances, circus spectacle and street theatre – and even the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow – but I think it’s the first time we’ve welcomed a giant baby!”

Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park (home of Imperial War Museum), London, Friday 10 & Saturday 11 May 2019. Tickets are priced at £8 and are on sale now at mind-the-gap.org.uk/productions/zara
