Unite, the Union, Brando’s new sponsors
Following on from Union North West’s support, Unite, the Union, North West, have also stepped forward to sponsor the play. Unite’s North West regional secretary, Mick Whitley, said, ‘It’s great to see a play, written by union members, make it to the stage and onto a national tour. It was hugely popular in 2012 when it first appeared and we want to give our members the opportunity to see a performance of the play everyone is talking about’.

Two of the North-West’s major unions sponsoring the play and promoting it to their members is a recognition of the strength of its themes – brotherhood, betrayal and solidarity, and an understanding that the play deals with issues relevant to the lives of workers, and not just seamen, and the choices faced by working class people both in the 50’s and today. We’re delighted to have their support and look forward to seeing their members at the performances over the coming weeks.
