Jonathan Watkins' A Northern Trilogy

A Northern Trilogy was originally created for Northern Ballet’s 45th anniversary Sapphire Gala in March 2015.

These three monologues evoke a real ‘northern’ atmosphere and the piece uses them as inspiration to blur the line between the events of the stories and more abstract ideas. Here Stanley Holloway, renowned for his comic performances, tells us how to make the perfect Yorkshire Pudding, about Private Sam’s eventful birthday and tales of Albert and his ‘stick with an ‘orse ‘ead ‘andle’.
