SATIN, A play by Sam Kingston-Jones
Friday 24th - Tuesday 28th February 7pm & 8:15pm
See Old Shire Hall transformed Into a Theatre... for one week only!
Satin, is set to be unlike anything Durham has witnessed before. An installation piece following the stories of several eccentric, if somewhat morally questionable characters in Victorian London, the piece owes much to Moulin Rouge alongside as well as including knowing nods to Dickens.
Complete with brass quintet performing music arranged in the Victorian Oom Pah Pah style and costumes from the West Yorkshire Playhouse, Old Shire Hall itself won’t be the only thing working to bring to life such a lavish period drama, live, before the eyes of its audience.
For the first time in its history as an administration building, The Rotunda in Durham’s stunning Old Shire Hall, will take on the function of a theatre for four nights beginning Friday 24th February.
This is the final year of the university’s residence in Old Shire Hall before relocating to the Palatine Centre and the production, Satin, will act a swan-song to Durham University’s fifty years of residence in the Hall.
Friday 24th February: 7pm and 8.15pm* Sunday 26th February: 7pm and 8.15pm Monday 27th February: 7pm and 8.15pm Tuesday 28th February: 7pm and 8,15pm

Satin has already gathered substantial interest from students and local residents alike and with a capacity of only 65 seats; some performances are already nearing selling out.
