God’s Own Country celebrates the values and achievements of Jo Cox MP. Combining her story with the drama of the EU referendum and the concerns of Brexit Britain, it’s both hard-hitting and very moving. As Jo’s colleague, Rachel Reeves said in the Commons: “Batley and Spen will go on to elect a new MP but no-one can replace a mother.”
It is written and directed by Keith Plant, and produced in association with Alsager Community Theatre (ACT), as part of a series of small-scale, touring plays. The group, which was founded in 1973, has an extensive repertory of award-winning productions covering a wide range of classic and modern plays.
