Formation Festival: Sob Story

20:15, 01 Mar

What does it take to win Yorkshire’s Got Talent?

Six old school friends reunite in the hope of sweeping the contest, but rehearsals get derailed when they realise talent isn’t enough – they need a tale of tragedy and triumph to win the judges’ hearts.

In their quest to find (or invent!) their sob story, things take a dark turn. Old wounds and long-buried untruths begin to surface. The afternoon gets hotter, and they begin to realise where the real sob story lies. Will they crack under the pressure as they sing for their lives?

 

★★★★

'This play has a lot to offer: laughter, music and a killer plot-twist. While it isn't funny and light-hearted the whole way through, Sob Story is an enjoyable watch with a brilliant cast and a powerful message.'
