Drama in the Albert Room

Lincs Inspire Arts and Libraries Development are delighted to be working with Breakwater Theatre Company and New Perspectives Theatre Company to bring a mixed programme of work to the Albert Room at Cleethorpes Library. This varied programme has been made possible thanks to grant funding from Arts Council England Grants for the Arts and Arts Libraries Fund and Heritage Lottery Funding.

"With Love From Ruhleben" has been written by Andy Evans of Breakwater Theatre Company, after much research, as part of a project funded by the Heritage Lottery Funding. It tells the story of the seamen from Grimsby who were interned at a civilian prison camp in Germany at the outbreak of World War One. We follow the story of three men captured by the Germans and trying to make the most of their lot in life at Ruhleben Internment Camp just outside Berlin. 

The play is one of many events led by Lincs Inspire Library Services taking place throughout May, June, July and August. For details of other Ruhleben talks, workshops and exhibitions, check out our Activities and Events page.

"We Are the Multitude" is a new play written by Laura Harper. Submitted after the initial round of scripts were entered for 'Rough Cuts and Scratches', the play is a dark comedy centred around a fictional cyber terrorist organisation called 'The Multitude'.
