“Making Light”   A New Play by Eddie Lawler

Performed by Shipley Little Theatre


Who was Blind Jack Metcalf?  

That question can be answered by few people outside of his native Knaresborough. Who was Mother Shipton? That question always gets an answer – “Some kind of prophetess….lived in a cave…..in Knaresborough. I think.”


Making Light features both these characters in celebration of Jack Metcalf’s 300th birthday this year.
