By George


"It’s impossible not to love everything about it: the set, the story, the characterisations, the music, the energy and the Yorkshire accents all create something beautiful."

The Reviews Hub

Woodhouse Musical Theatre Company and Lawrence Batley Theatre present the world premiere of a brand new Yorkshire musical. By George is a love letter to strong Northern women, family and a good old fish supper. Greasy’s the word!

Meet George, Pauline and Sam. A Yorkshire family living above their traditional Yorkshire chip shop. But everything’s not just salt and vinegar. This fish and chip empire is crumbling. George is fed up of frying and would much rather be in the pub, Sam has grown up without anyone noticing and there's serial divorcee Marge on the prowl too. Stepping out of the constant stench of chip fat is our plucky heroine Pauline. A Yorkshire lass determined to keep everything from boiling over…

Full of riotously funny Victoria Wood-inspired songs written by Richard Sykes, By George follows Pauline’s battle to pull her family out of the ruins. A sizzling story of female empowerment, Northern heart and chippy teas.
