Heartbreaking and uplifting, Brass tells the story of a group of men from a Leeds-based brass band who sign up to fight as part of the Leeds Pals battalion. In their absence, their women folk, all munitions workers at the infamous Barnbow factory, decide to learn the instruments the men have left behind in the hope of playing triumphantly for them on their return from war. But how many will make it home? The NYMT’s production of Brass is a spectacle: musical theatre on a scale very rarely seen, with a company of more than sixty of the finest young actors and musicians in the UK.
