Nottingham Playhouse has announced Adam Penford’s second season as artistic director, including the return of the hugely popular Wonderland.

Following an exceptionally successful first year in post, Nottingham Playhouse’s artistic director Adam Penford has announced his spring season for 2019, which includes four main stage productions and a refreshed take on the theatre’s approach to working with associate artists.

Nottingham Playhouse’s chief executive Stephanie Sirr said: “We’ve been thrilled with the response to Adam’s fantastic first year as artistic director. A really creative and very ambitious season has truly paid off – we’ve loved audiences’ reactions to the work.

“2019 is already looking like it will have the same high-profile potential and we can’t wait to get started.”

Penford’s hugely ambitious 2018 programme brought some of the UK’s best actors, directors and playwrights to the city and has also provided a platform for Nottingham’s artists and theatre makers. Well received by audiences and theatre critics alike, his debut programme is due to culminate this year with the production of Alan Bennett’s The Madness of George III, which will also be broadcast across the world through National Theatre Live.

Adam Penford said: “Everyone at the theatre has been delighted with the audience response to our 2018 programme. The reaction to the work has been generous and supportive.

“I’m excited our plans for the first half of next year includes four varied main stage shows; a revival, an adaptation of a family novel, a modern classic and a regional premiere.

“We’re also excited to confirm directors for all four shows too; including the return of Matthew Xia – who directed Shebeen for us earlier this year – and two of the most innovative directors in the industry at the moment; Lisa Blair and Adele Thomas.

“The intention is to build upon some of the ideas we introduced with this year, whilst continuing to explore new approaches.

“I hope to always keep the work fresh and innovative, balancing offering a great night out at the theatre, whilst challenging the artists we collaborate with to be bolder and more inventive, attracting the highest quality theatre-makers.”

In February, Adam’s first production of 2019 is the previously announced return of Wonderland by Beth Steel, a gripping play that takes a 360° look at the events of the 1984-85 miners’ strike.

Following the success of Holes in the 2018 programme, Penford continues his programming of titles aimed at schools and family audiences. Nottingham Playhouse will produce David Almond’s adaption of his own modern classic novel Skellig, which follows the story of a 12-year-old boy – Michael – whose younger sister is born prematurely. With his parents focusing much of their attention on the newborn, Michael is left to explore the new family home and discovers a creature in its crumbling garage; Skellig.

Fresh from her acclaimed revival of Jez Butterworth’s Jerusalem, Lisa Blair is confirmed to direct Skellig, which will look to strike the perfect balance between magic and real life, and take the audience on a visually thrilling journey as the Whitbread Children’s Book of the Year story is retold on stage.

Next in the 2019 season will be The Memory of Water; a comedy drama directed by highly acclaimed director and National Theatre, Royal Court and Shakespeare’s Globe regular, Adele Thomas. The story follows three estranged sisters who return to their childhood home on the eve of their mother’s funeral. Shelagh Stephenson’s Olivier award-winning story is a relatable drama about the complexities of family relationships.

Completing the spring line up is the regional premiere of acclaimed American play One Night in Miami…, which will see the return of director Matthew Xia to the Playhouse. The role of soul singer Sam Cooke will be played by Olivier award winner Matt Henry who won best actor for his performance in Kinky Boots.

Also new for 2019 will be Nottingham Playhouse’s approach to working with associate artists. Three exciting appointments have been made: director Matthew Xia, and playwrights James Graham and Amanda Whittington. To open up access to this important new group, the theatre is also advertising for a passionate and dedicated fourth associate artist to join the cohort.

Adam said: “I am over the moon that James, Amanda and Matthew have agreed to join us. Not only are they three of the most acclaimed theatre practitioners working in UK theatre, both James and Amanda also hail from the region.

“The associate artists bring with them a variety of skills, experiences and interests and will act as a diverse sounding board, ensuring Nottingham Playhouse’s artistic decisions are truly representative.

“In 2019 we’ll also be continuing our focus on local artist development through our programme Amplify, which will continue to act as a springboard for East Midlands theatre makers looking to develop their professional careers.”

Nottingham Playhouse announces return of the ‘unmissable’ drama Wonderland

FOLLOWING rave reviews from critics and audiences Nottingham Playhouse has revealed that Wonderland will be returning to the theatre as part of the 2019 season, prior to a run at Northern Stage in Newcastle.

Ahead of the full Spring 2019 season announcement on 15 October, Nottingham Playhouse has confirmed that the play based on the miners’ strike in Nottingham will be returning to the venue for a second leg in February (Friday 8 – Saturday 23), before heading to Northern Stage in Newcastle from Wednesday 27 February through to Saturday 9 March.

Written by the daughter of a Nottinghamshire miner Beth Steel, Wonderland was the first in a string of highly successful shows for Adam Penford’s debut season as artistic director at the Playhouse and its set designer Morgan Large has since been nominated for a UK Theatre Award for his ambitious Wonderland set design.

Adam said: “We had an overwhelming response to Wonderland earlier this year, with standing ovations every night, and audiences have constantly been calling for its return. I’m thrilled we’ve been able to make that happen and also to take the production to Newcastle, another city where I’m sure it will resonate just as strongly.

“The story produced a passionate response in audiences, both tears and laughter, irrespective of whether they lived through that period in our history or are just learning about it. Beth’s play is a masterwork, full of gritty dialogue, larger-than-life characters, plus songs and movement – it’s great to be giving further life to a local writer’s work.”

Matt Runham, Northern Stage senior producer said: “Building on the recent success of co-productions East is East andNoises Off, we’re excited to be working with Nottingham Playhouse again to bring Wonderland to Newcastle as part of our Spring 2019 season.

“People in the North East know only too well how the pit closures affected local communities so we think this gripping story of the events leading up to the miner’s strike will resonate with our audience.

“Designer Morgan Large’s stunning set design was widely praised by critics, so we’re not surprised to hear it has just been nominated for Best Design at the UK Theatre Awards and we can’t wait to see Wonderland on our main stage.”

Set in Nottinghamshire in 1983, Wonderland follows two 16-year-olds as they wait nervously at the pithead. Guided by a veteran miner, they descend into the brotherhood, banter, searing heat and liquid blue light of Welbeck Colliery.

Meanwhile in London, an American CEO known as The Butcher is brought in to reform King Coal. Pits close and a strike is called.

A Tory MP tussles with his leader’s hard line ideology, whilst an eccentric dandy is sent undercover to break up the strike. Cracks appear on all sides as the embattled miners are torn apart trying to protect their livelihoods and families. Nothing will be the same again.

Theatre Diary: Sweet Charity, SIX The Musical, Abigail’s Party & Eugenius!

It’s a popular misconception, and one frequently held by opportunists, that low quality, no-redeeming-features musicals are easy to palm off on theatre fans. See: Heathers / The Band.

Far from being guaranteed to rock your world, EUGENIUS! is guaranteed to bore you rigid. It is with deep regret that I inform you this sci-fi super hero show is not a good musical in any world.

There are moments you feel the show wants to get out of first gear; when the bizarre dancing fish people appear. Aaron Renfree’s choreography is perfectly satisfactory. Oh, and he was an S Club Junior as well.

This production has been tottering around London for 2 years now – originally staged as a concert at the London Palladium in 2016. But it is 2018 and Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins’ 80’s inspired show is back at The Other Palace. It has very few redeeming features, aside from Rob Houchen. He plays the lead role of Eugene well.

Most of the music doesn’t work, but it scores a palpable hit with ‘Comic Book Kind Of Love’. Every other line, every other character, seems mechanical. It just doesn’t know what it is or who it is for. I also take issue with the grossly stereotype homosexual character – played by Scott Paige. It’s just not funny to have an effeminate individual just for their gayness. Basic.

The Warwick Davies produced musical starts off being far better than you might have expected, ends up being far worse than you could ever have feared. Sadly, it swerves anything meaningful and hurls itself into a sort of risible parody of a parody affair with basic gender stereotypes, a ropey design and misguided sexual politics, which is a bit disappointing but, well, it’s 2018 isn’t it. Avoid.

Life in prison for Warwick and the other two, please.

At Nottingham Playhouse, Rebecca Trehearn demonstrates how Sweet Charity should be done. Everything glides by like a dream.

As Charity Hope Valentine Rebecca Trehearn enters like a ditzy lioness in Bill Buckhurst’s triumphant revival of the 1966 Broadway hit – the first musical produced by the Playhouse in over a decade. Everyone is in most assured hands with choreographer Alistair David, master of clever choreography that animates everything. Sizzling stuff.

SWEET CHARITY

SWEET CHARITY

Things soar with a dazzling interpretation of Big Spender and Buckhurst brings his particular gifts to the show: nimble direction, razzle-dazzle, pinpoint characterisation. Yes, it goes on a bit, at nearly three hours long. Nonetheless, an evening of many enchanting charms with a winning vitality.

Another year, another revival of Abigail’s Party. Douglas Rintoul’s treacle slow production both stages and stays faithful to Mike Leigh’s acidic comedy about 1970s social norms at Queen’s Theatre, HornchurchMelanie Gutteridge is beautifully contained as the ghastly host Beverley, though. Her delivery of: “Laurence, Angela likes Demis Roussos. Tony likes Demis Roussos, I like Demis Roussos, and Sue would like to hear Demis Roussos: so please, d’you think we could have Demis Roussos on?” brought a wide smile to my face. Brilliant.

There are plenty of quietly enjoyable moments. But everything lacks depth that would give it savour. The design helps; Lee Newby’s smartly 70’s kitch work frames the action acutely.

But this is a safe evening: a retrieval rather than a rediscovery, it adds nothing new. The greatness of Leigh’s play lies in its unspoken wish that aggressive suburban consumerism might itself one day have the courage to confront reality.

A new British musical that’s as brilliant as it is absolutely daft, Six The Musical has made the last few years of Arts Theatre, London worth all the hassle.

Managing to be an inspiring piece about female empowerment without being trite and generally shit, SIX The Musical enjoyed a sell-out run at Edinburgh Fringe this year and arrives in town evolved with a real buzz.

Cheers all round for a resounding bunch of queens. A royal affair, sassy performances and a show-making all-female crew stir in tinselly costumes. This concert-style show about the six wives of Henry VIII is a real joy.

SIX

SIX

Yes, the message here is probably as substantial as Girl Power once was / is, but this is stompy musical theatre perfection nonetheless. There’s a strong sense of ‘imperial phase Little Mix’ in this musical, which is to say it’s close to pop musical perfection. There’s a lesson to be learned here.

Eugenius! is at The Other Palace until 21 October.

Sweet Charity is at Nottingham Playhouse until 22 September.

Abigail’s Party is at Queens Theatre Hornchurch until 22 September, then touring. 

SIXthe Musical is at Arts Theatre, London until 1 December.

A small asteroid has hit the capital city. Thousands have been displaced. And in a town far away, a young man called Vin (Ted Reilly) is finding it hard to talk.

The only person who seems to notice is Rachel (Safiyya Ingar), who resolves to find out what’s troubling him and help him find his voice again. But when Rach’s family take in the articulate and charismatic survivor of the asteroid incident, Vin’s silence is no longer her first priority.

Having already been named as a theatre highlight of 2018 by BBC News, the show has drawn much media attention thanks to the casting of Mark Gatiss in the lead role of King George III.

No stranger to a royal-themed production, Olivier Award winner Adrian Scarborough will join the The League of Gentleman writer as Dr Willis. Scarborough, who is also due to appear with Gatiss in the upcoming Disney film, Christopher Robin, is best known for his involvement in hit TV sitcom Gavin and Stacey and appearance in Oscar winning film The King’s Speech, as well as his National Theatre performances in King Lear, and After the Dance. He is also well-versed with The Madness of George III production, after appearing as Fortnum in the 1994 film version.

Commenting on the casting, director Adam Penford said: “Adrian Scarborough and I have been looking for a project to work on together for a long time. He and Mark Gatiss are two of the UK’s leading theatre actors; their combined talents on stage in this modern classic will be theatrical dynamite. Nottingham’s in for a real treat!

“The play is dramatic, moving and funny and focuses on power and identity, examining the fine line between a King and a man.”

The Madness of George III, written by Alan Bennett, is an epic, multi award-winning drama. Set in 1786, King George III is the most powerful man in the world. However, his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy; and his mind unravels at a dramatic pace.

As the Queen and Prime Minister attempt to hide the king’s illness from his subjects, royal doctors hopelessly squabble over the correct cure, subjecting him to torturous medical treatments.

Ambitious politicians and the scheming prince begin a power struggle, endangering the stability of the crown.

The Madness of George III runs from Friday 2 November until Saturday 24 November

Tickets are priced £8.50 – £37.50

Nottingham Playhouse announces casting for Holes featuring soap stars and Playhouse favourites

Chris Ashby

Chris Ashby

  • Award-winning actress Kacey Ainsworth (Little Mo in EastEnders) to play the Warden
  • Playhouse panto favourite John Elkington to play Mr Sir
  • East Midlands-born actor Chris Ashby returns to take lead part of Stanley, following his successful portrayal of Malcom in Wonderland

Following five-star reviews for Wonderland, Adam Penford’s inaugural production as Artistic Director, he and Nottingham Playhouse announced  the full cast of a theatrical version of the multi-award-winning novel Holes by Louis Sachar.

Set in Texas, Stanley Yelnats (Chris Ashby) can’t catch a break. Born into a family cursed with bad luck – thanks to Stanley’s ‘no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather’ – it comes as no surprise when he finds himself accused of a crime he didn’t commit.

Sent to Camp Green Lake (it isn’t green and there is no lake) as punishment, he is made to dig a hole every day – five foot deep, five foot in diameter – in the baked earth to ‘build character’. But the powerful Warden (Kacey Ainsworth) is definitely searching for something.

Will Stanley and his fellow inmates survive the heat and thirst, the deadly yellow-spotted lizards and the Warden’s ambitions? And more importantly, will they discover what they are really digging for before time runs out?

Joining Chris Ashby and Kacey Ainsworth will be Playhouse panto regular John Elkington as Mr Sir.

Showing the Playhouse’s commitment to diversity, Holes has been cast gender-blind, with some of the male inmates being portrayed by female actors.

Taking the role of Stanley’s best friend at Camp Green Lake, Zero, is Pepter Lunkuse. Other inmates at the camp include X-Ray (played by Ammar Duffus), Magnet (played by Safiyya Ingar), Armpit (played by Henry Mettle, marking his debut professional stage performance).

Local actor Elizabeth Twells returns to the Playhouse as ‘Kissing’ Kate Barlow, as well as Stanley’s Mom,MyraSarah and Ms Morengo.

Edward Harrison will play Stanley’s DadMr PendanskiTrout Walker and Elya. Meanwhile Greg Lockett will play Sam and Myra’s father.

This family-friendly adventure story includes live music, puppetry from the Resident Puppetry Director on War Horse (Matthew Forbes), and breath-taking scenery. The show is suitable for adults and children aged eight and up.

Adam Penford said: “Holes is an amazing story of friendship and justice. It has a gripping narrative, enchanting characters and real jeopardy. I wanted a family-friendly production that would appeal to both our pantomime and drama audiences.

“The film and novel are extremely popular with both adults and children, which makes Holes a perfect choice.”

Holes runs from Saturday 31 March through to Sunday 22 April 2018.

Tickets are priced £37.50 – £8.50
