Singing the Fishing

Crude Apache

Presented in association with the Maddermarket Theatre

Singing the Fishing is a musical play based on Ewan McColl’s sixties BBC radio broadcast of the same name.

Following on from Crude Apache’s sell-out show at the Maddermarket about the Norfolk Broads: At the Turning of the Tide, the company will take the audience out to sea and into the world of the herring fishing industry from 1892 to the nineteen-sixties.

Using all of MacColl’s original songs and based on the original musical direction by Peggy Seeger, the company weave music and narrative together into a gripping and enchanting tale of man’s battle against the elements, the sea, the vagaries of capitalist marketplaces and two world wars.

Singing the Fishing is a human story of joy, triumph and tragedy, with a large ensemble cast and multi-instrumental acoustic band bringing the music and story to vivid and dramatic life.

All songs written by Ewan Maccoll. Published by Ewan Maccoll Limited Harmony Music Ltd. Used with permission of the publishers.

Wednesday the 24th – Saturday the 27th of January 2024 at 19:30pm with a matinee on Saturday at 14:30 pm. Tickets for all shows are £12 standard and £10 concessions (Over65s, Under25s, Universal Credit and NHS
