Off The Wall: the journey of a play.
Illustrated with photographs.
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.
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.
