The uplifting story about a downfall

When theatre-maker Shôn Dale-Jones becomes too pessimistic to write a new show, he approaches his long-time collaborator, the Welsh emerging artist, Hugh Hughes, to step in.

Determined to restore Shôn’s faith in humanity, Hugh creates The Ladder. Using the story of his father’s life and death, Hugh Hughes challenges us to wake up to the pitfalls that surround our everyday lives.

The Ladder is a wake-up call to the sleepwalkers heading off the edge of the cliff. The show exposes us to some of the decisions we make in our lives – decisions we make, knowing full well, that we’re making the wrong choices.

“Warm, funny and dances a gentle line between playfulness and pathos”

Commissioned by Norfolk and Norwich Festival. In association with Theatre Royal Plymouth & Cambridge Junction


Please note:
The annual Christmas Lights Switch on event will be on Thursday 21 November from 6pm until 8pm in Salisbury Market Place.
