About this show

59E59 Theaters welcomes the first ever musical at Brits Off Broadway, the critically acclaimed new chamber production of The Hired Man, featuring book by Melvyn Bragg, music and lyrics by Howard Goodall and directed by Daniel Buckroyd. Set in rural Cumbria in the early part of the twentieth century, The Hired Man tells the timeless, moving story of a young married couple and their struggle to carve a living from the land, just as the rhythms of English country life are being interrupted by the gathering storm of war in Europe. Adapted from Melvyn Bragg's 1969 novel, the show has been acclaimed for its epic, amusing and nostalgic book and its rousing, romantic, award-winning score.
