Final week of neat11

As we enter the final week of neat11 it is wonderful to hear the fantastic feedback from critics and audiences alike. The festival has been commended by critic with Left Lion magazine describing the festival as “A huge boost to the local arts scene” and Saturdays Telegraph including neat11 in their Critics Choice.

Woyzeck has received great reviews with Left Lion describing it as “A thought-provoking dip into the abyss of human existence”, while Nottingham Post complimented the use of songs by Tom Waits used to accompany the piece: “Music and imaginary combine so perfectly.” One audience member also commented: “Loved Woyzeck – fantastic and unmissable!”

Reckless Sleepers innovative performance piece The Last Supper at Nottingham Contemporary was also well received. Left Lion commented: “It’s a clever recipe combining just the right amounts of humour and poignancy” whilst a participant said: “A beautifully simple idea, beautifully executed (pardon the pun). This show sent shivers down my spine.”

This success is set to continue this week with an array of exciting events across the city.

If it’s comedy you are after, then why not grab a ticket for Bo Burnham at Nottingham Playhouse. After a fantastic run at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2010, his show is packed with jokes and intricate wordplay that leaves you wondering what it was that first set you off giggling. Catch him on the Tuesday 7 June. Tickets are priced at £15. Call Nottingham Playhouse Box Office on 0115 941 9419 to book.

We are also very pleased to welcome Teatr Nowy’s production of Faust to Nottingham Playhouse from 9 – 11 June. This dark and tragic spectacle tells the tale of the owner of an old, forgotten studio who stages the history of Faust before the very eyes of audience. Tickets are priced at £20 or £17 with concession. To book call Nottingham Playhouse Box Office on 0115 941 9419.

Chekhov International Festival in association with Theatre Royal Nottingham will be presenting the sweeping love story, Three Sisters. Arguably the greatest play of the 20th century, Three Sisters tells the tale of Olga, Irina and Masha whose lives are turned upside down by the arrival in their remote town of the glamorous officer Veshinin. Three Sisters will be playing at Theatre Royal from 8 – 11 June at 7.45pm, with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm, and offers a real opportunity to see world-class theatre at its very best. Tickets are priced from £13 – £27.50. Call Theatre Royal Box Office on 0115 989 5555.

All in all a very exciting week ahead for neat11 and there are plenty more shows on offer! For more information visit www.neatfestival.co.uk website or contact the Nottingham Playhouse Box Office on 0115 941 9419.
