Our Line

Friday 6 November - Monday 1 March

an app based audio play by Hannah Bruce & Co

“I never met my great grandmother Nora, but she hovers around the edges of my mother’s memory. A tiny woman, she died when my mam was about 7.  She remembers her baby teeth coming out at the time.”

Our Line brings you the real and imagined stories of the people from towns along the Bishop Line, in exactly the time it takes a train to go from Darlington to Bishop Auckland.

Get a ticket, follow its instructions to download the app and relax into their world through your headphones.

You will also have access to a Bonus track, a companion piece for the story Our Line. It includes excerpts from interviews with volunteers from Darlington and towns along the Bishop Line, who kindly helped us to research the content. We looked at old photographs, talked about how Darlington used to be, and reminisced about train journeys. These stories are really alive and personal.

Our Line was created by Hannah Bruce & Co, commissioned by Luxi and presented as a Jabberwocky Market pop-up theatre event in partnership with Northern, the Bishop Line Community Rail Partnership & University of York.
