The Yank Is A Manc! My Ancestors & Me - Camden Fringe 2019
In a fish-out-of-water comedy of errors, Hopwood DePree tells of how researching his ancestry online led to him leaving Tinseltown to save his 600-year-old British country pile, Hopwood Hall. Built by his ancestors in 1426 near Rochdale, the 60-room mansion is now falling down and Hopwood is on a mission to save it! At last the locals may have found an heir to rescue the Hall, but perhaps Hopwood's not quite the heir they had in mind... The true story as featured in The Guardian, Good Morning Britain, USA Today and The One Show among many others. Expect intriguing family history, culture clashes, community spirit and plenty of calamities in an uplifting multimedia stand-up storytelling show.
