Zara at The Piece Hall, 19–20 April 2019, from £8 - Book now

Get the date in your diary for Zara, a giant outdoor theatre event like no other set in one of our favourite places, the historic courtyard of Halifax’s Piece Hall.

Doyennes of outdoor spectacle, Walk The Plank and leading learning disability theatre Mind The Gap join forces this spring.  Details are yet to be revealed but we can expect a a giant baby, 3D projection mapping, a large cast of local performers and an original music score. These jaw-dropping elements will come together to tell the epic story of one learning disabled mother, Zara, and her fight to protect her baby Eva.

Mind The Gap aim to make great theatre that makes audiences think differently. This co-production with Walk The Plank, purveyors of ambitious, large-scale outdoor arts events across the world, is set to be unmissable.
