In My Shoes is about a father and son who have a troublesome relationship that lacks respect and understanding.

In a desperate attempt to solve their differences, they attend an extreme therapy session where they are forced to develop their understanding of how it feels to be in another person’s shoes.

Through slick theatre and highly skilled, explosive, physical dance the real life dramas portray challenging life experiences that are compassionate and entertaining.

Rationale Productions exhilarating and witty choreography aims to bring hip hop theatre into the community, inspiring audiences and bridging the gap between old and young.

They promise to transform The Dukes Rake into an exciting melting pot full of passion, energy and street dance on March 29.

As a curtain raiser to In My Shoes, Lancaster’s own Ludus Dance street crew will perform a new short piece – Ludicrous Evolved - featuring some of the area’s most talented and passionate young street dancers.

Come expecting high energy, lots of laughter and a ton of hip hop moves that will blow you away. Tickets are £10/£8 concessions (includes £1 per ticket fee when booking online). To book, ring The Dukes Box Office on 01524 598500 or visit
