Following this year’s highly acclaimed and hugely successful theatre run of 'The Great Joe Wilson , top North East playwright Ed Waugh’s brings his music hall version of the show to the Irish Centre for one night only.
For the third successive year, yet another two hours of different sweet sonorous sounds and uproarious jocularity.

The all-star cast...
Hosted by the immensely talented songwriter, vocalist and funnyman Mr William (Billy) Mitchell (Pitmen Poets and Lindisfarne) and starring a monster array of North East singing and comedic talent including Micky Cochrane, Sarah Boulter, Vik Kay, Lauren Waine, Maxie McIntyre, Steven Stobbs, Bob Stott, Jamie Brown and Craig Richardson with violinist Rachael McShane (ex-Bellowhead), and pianist Jordan Miller (The Great Joe Wilson).
