· A lively guide to the idiosyncrasies of Hadrian’s Wall


Off the Wall is a lively guide to the idiosyncrasies of Hadrian’s Wall and the communities that live at either end and along the route. A unique journal of an acting company's ten day walk along the Roman Wall performing a specially commissioned play. Plus the play text itself

Cloud Nine Troubadours walked the length of the Wall performing every night. The play – included in full – was a specially commissioned account of one entrepreneur’s attempt to turn the Wall into the world’s longest theme park.

This book records the journey in its raw detail, parts of which were also covered as a daily log by the Newcastle Journal.
