    What's it about?

    January 2018, and a busy day at the offices of Hull 2017. Today is the ceremonial handover to ambassadors from Coventry, the next UK City of Culture. Meanwhile, the monitoring and evaluation team have to present The Audit – a measurement of the impact ‘the culture’ has had on the city. Can their logic models, outcome evaluations and statistical analyses really measure its impact on the people of Hull? The visiting Minister from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport certainly expect so.

    What could go wrong…?

    Only, perhaps, Dennis, an average citizen who arrives into the offices of Hull 2017 on lowgate to register a complaint but accidentally finds himself at the centre of events that could bring the whole thing to its knees.

    The Culture is a satirical farce in two acts, examining the ‘culture’ of culture, and the inner workings of the Hull 2017 project.

    Writer James Graham (writer of Ink and Labour of Love which ran concurrently in the West End in 2017; This House nominated for the Olivier Best play award; and The Vote, nominated for a BAFTA) was granted behind the scenes access to the running of the year-long festival.
