Last seen at the North Wall in 2017, The Red Shed is part of Mark’s theatrical trilogy, following the much-revered Bravo Figaro and Cuckooed. Mark returns to the place where it all began – the Red Shed, a labour club in Wakefield – to celebrate the club’s 50th birthday as he continues his tour in 2017 of yet another award-winning, highly acclaimed performance.
The Shed, home to Mark’s first public performances, is also a home to dissent, to organising and to progressive politics, and so it was here that Mark’s true political prowess began. An iconic and vital place for its patrons, this is where the true meaning of solidarity is found and where you can be part of history and part of the struggle. A south London lad, born to a Thatcherite world of self-employed builders, labourers and tradesman like his father where the individual is key, Wakefield’s alien traditional labour community awoke a new determination in Mark and changed his life forever.
Part theatre, part stand up, part journalism, part activism, Mark realises his obsession with community and struggle. The latest lockdown livestream from Mark Thomas, featured a live intro, a recording of The Red Shed, and a live Q&A.
