Common Ground Theatre Present
KITTY BRIDGES’ POCKET BOOK OF TUNES
Written and performed by Hannah Davies
With music from Paul Baldwin and Moira Clarke from Over the Yardarm
Inspired by the poem and folk music found in a small pocket book from 1745, this is a lively and lyrical piece of storytelling, with a playful and irreverent nod to the era that bore it. Kitty’s adventure begins in her beloved Yorkshire, as she travels further afield she encounters scoundrels, rogues and vagabonds in ballrooms, gin-sodden back streets and on the open road. A play about music, freedom, greed and ownership. A lively mix of contemporary storytelling, poetry and song, with handpicked melodies for dancing and cavorting.
A collaboration between Common Ground Theatre and musicians Paul Baldwin (mandolin, banjo, bouzouki, cittern) and Moira Clarke (recorder, melodeon, concertina) from upbeat, fierce folk band Over the Yardarm.
