This event has probably been and gone!
Play about the great debate and political battle between the borough engineer Rupert Worley and part of the Council and public to remove the hill that once covered Garden Place. An extraordinary man who at the age of 23 had a major role in engineering works on the Western front in World War I. Later awarded international prizes in Paris for his world leading engineering innovations in Hamilton – one being the Anglesea Street cut and another the water tower in Lake Road– along with his assistant Jim Baird. It is full of interest, intrigue, political in-fighting and tells a fascinating story from Hamilton’s past. A first-rate cast has been assembled.
It will also be the play that will open the newly refurbished Meteor. A play by a Hamiltonian on a great story from the city’s past. What could be more appropriate. It is terrific theatre as well!
