Hull Truck Theatre would like to invite you to a rehearsed reading of
This Damp Won’t Burn by Josh Overton.

Tuesday 26th March 2024
from 7.00pm – 9.00pm
at The New Adelphi Club
89 De Grey Street, Hull HU5 2RU

About the play: 
The play is about the history of The New Adelphi Club and follows the lives of Sammy and Meera over 40 years whose lives are inextricably linked to the club. The play tells the club’s funny and unique history whilst telling an original story about the lives of people who frequent the venue.

Hull Truck Theatre would like a small audience of Adelphi fans/customers to attend the reading so that we can hear the play in front of a live audience and develop the play further.

What is a rehearsed reading? 
When developing a new play, sometimes theatres gather a team of actors to read the play aloud to test it. Sometimes this is in closed setting and sometimes in front of an audience. This gives the writers and staff at the theatre a chance to hear the play and look at ways to improve it.
