Sign of the Times

A Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds Production

Fri 30 — Sat 31 Jan

at Theatre Royal

by Tim Firth

directed by Karen Simpson


Frank is the Head of Installation at Forshaws, a commercial lettering factory, and an aspiring novelist. Teenager Alan is his reluctant trainee, more interested in his band ‘Lizard’ and his iPod than the complexities of bracketing systems and electrical isolators. However, this pair of Yorkshiremen have a lot more in common than they both think…


Produced by the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds (Mansfield Park 2012 & 2013), directed by Karen Simpson (Some Like It Hotter) and written by award-winning writer Tim Firth (Calendar Girls, Kinky Boots), this production promises to be a witty and moving account of life, art and the never-ending quest for happiness.
