    The streets on the stage

    18 March 2019
    A 2 minute read by Mark Latham

    It’s been a busy old week at Park Hill. Hot on the heels of us announcing a phase 3 partner and the news that investment has exceeded £100m, a brand new musical about the building has now opened its doors.

    With music and lyrics by Sheffield’s own Richard Hawley, words by Chris Bush and directed by Rob Hastie, Artistic Director of Sheffield Theatres, Standing at the Sky’s Edge, takes the audience into the hearts and homes of the people of Park Hill; it chronicles the early days - when it was hailed as an urban utopia - all the way through to the redeveloped structure now.

    The writers have dug deep to create the story, consulting with current and previous residents to create a production that spans three generations.

    Park Hill, Sheffield

    The play runs at The Crucible Theatre in Sheffield until 6 April; we’re off to see it this week - and recommend that you do too!
