THE COPPERGATE WOMAN – YORKS EPIC COMMUNITY PRODUCTION

AT THE YORK THEATRE ROYAL

THE COPPERGATE WOMAN – YORKS EPIC COMMUNITY PRODUCTION

Discovered in a shallow pit by the river Foss, the remains of an unknown woman are displayed in a glass case in JORVIK Viking Centre in York. She is The Coppergate Woman – and she will be brought back to life in York Theatre Royal’s latest community production.

Weaving Viking legends with the stories of modern-day York people, this epic new play draws on Norse myths and legends and focuses on the central figure of The Coppergate Woman, played by local actress Kate Hampson. Kate was born, brought up and still lives in Yorkshire and trained at York St John University and The Utrecht School of Arts.

Kate joins an ensemble cast of over 90 local people for this production which will takes place on the Main House stage from 30 July to 6 August.

The Coppergate Woman production has been generously supported by sponsors City Cruises, Black Sheep Brewery and Asgard and in partnership with JORVIK Viking Centre.

 Tickets are now on sale via the York Theatre Royal website www.yorktheatreroyal.co.uk and Box Office.
