Nottingham Set in rural Cumbria in the early part of the twentieth century, THE HIRED MAN tells the timeless, moving stor 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. Featuring stunning traditional British chamber music, this haunting, thrilling and stirring production is unlike any musical on the NY stage.
