The World Premier!

A play by David Farne

With Phillipa Wilson (Emmerdale/ Eastenders/ Pitman Painters on Broadway)

Directed by Neil Armstrong

Come on an amazing journey with Gertrude Bell, a North East Heroine.

Climb the Alps in your underwear, cross scorching deserts, and parley with Churchill and Laurence of Arabia.

Born in Washington 150 years ago, Gertrude scorned a life of privilege to travel the world.

In this inspiring, moving and humorous world premier, she tells her true life story, and how she became known as Khatun: Desert Queen. 

Includes  a post show Q+A with the writer.
