The time has come for the big reveal, and we're thrilled to announce an exceptional season of revivals and world premieres for 2017.
Our 2017 season will be a heady and eclectic mix of vibrant and subversive visions, asking vital questions about who we are and how we live today.
One of the defining novels of the 20th Century, Gunter Grass’ dazzling tour de force, The Tin Drum will be brought to thrilling theatrical life in a touring co-production with Liverpool Everyman Playhouse and West Yorkshire Playhouse. Directed by Mike Shepherd, written by Artistic Associate Carl Grose with music by Charles Hazelwood, The Tin Drum is a folktale for troubled times: a dark, burlesque comic extravaganza, which is at once daringly provocative, political and profound.
Tristan and Yseult, the quintessential tale of forbidden desires, embarks on a Celtic tour, travelling to Cornwall, Scotland, Wales and Ireland via Shakespeare’s Globe, Bristol Old Vic and an exciting run as part of the Brighton Festival. Tickets are on sale at most venues: see the full venue list here.
Following its sold-runs last year at Bristol Old Vic and the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, Daniel Jamieson’s sublime The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk will return to Bristol in August before playing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with future London dates planned in 2018. Keep a look out as tickets will be on sale for Edinburgh very soon!
We can't wait bring you a bold and brave season and look forward to seeing you all join us. Get ready to dance to the beat of a different drum!
