Hard Times was a fantastic achievement for the Library Theatre Company, both artistically and logistically. Whilst making the show, we were followed by local documentary maker Greg Bevan. The result is a short film that following it’s premiere at Cornerhouse, is now online for all to view right here.

The first in a special series of events set outside conventional theatre spaces, Hard Times was produced in an original disused cotton mill and was put together by a team of over 120 people and partner organisations.

Watch the team as the production is put together and rehearsed and hear about the challenges of creating theatre for a modern day audience in a building that has been empty for decades! Featuring excerpts from the show as well as rehearsals and narration by the director, designer, actors, Community Company and more.
