A heart-wrenching musical story of racism and injustice

A story that was headline news around the world will be told at Sharnbrook Mill Theatre next week.

Thursday, 12th November 2015, 6:30 am

Parade runs from Monday, November 16, to Saturday, November 21, at 7.30pm daily.

Leo Frank, a Jewish factory owner living in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, was wrongfully convicted of the rape and murder of a 13-year-old employee.

Parade deals with the South’s propensity in the early 20th century for handing out rough justice to its black population. From the haunting opening number, a rich, tuneful score underpins a poignant narrative that exposes the bigotry, fear and hypocrisy in the Southern states of the USA.

Tickets start at £11. Visit www.sharnbrookmilltheatre.co.uk or call 01234 718044 to book.
