Photos: TALENT Opens Tonight at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield

Talent is a play with music about friendship, ambition and the lower rungs of the showbiz ladder.

Talent by Victoria Wood, directed by Paul Foster will play the Crucible Theatre July 2 through Saturday 24th July 2021.

It's 1978. Bunters club is hosting its Friday Talent Night - the acts on the bill hope that it's a stepping stone to New Faces or Opportunity Knocks. 24-year-old Julie dreams of stardom, escape from her dead-end job and the chance to leave the drudgery of living at home with her mother. Her less worldly-wise friend Maureen has come along to offer support.

Full of Victoria Wood's unmatched wit and observation, Talent is a play with music about friendship, ambition and the lower rungs of the showbiz ladder.

Cast in the play are: Richard Cant (The Country Wife), Daniel Crossley (Me and My Girl), Jamie-Rose Monk (Dick Whittington), Jonathon Ojinnaka, (Coronation Street), James Quinn (Democracy) and Lucie Shorthouse (Everybody's Talking About Jamie).
