Summer season now booking

Friday 23rd March 2012

On Friday we launched our summer season, which also featured an exclusive preview of our autumn drama highlights.

We heard from Jenny Sealey MBE, Artistic Director of Graeae and director of the high energy show Reasons to be Cheerful. Part gig, part play, this show is set to bring the house down.

Exclusive footage from the rehearsal room of Roots was shown, giving people an insight into what to expect from Andrew Breakwell’s version of Arnold Wesker’s much revered play.

The team behind Grandpa in my Pocket – Teamwork! spoke about their excitement at working with Nottingham Playhouse to create the first ever stage production of this incredibly popular children’s TV show.

William Ivory, writer of our forthcoming production Diary of a Football Nobody, based on former Notts County player David McVay’s hilarious memoir Steak…Diana Ross spoke of his hopes for the play and for Notts County fans to come out in force wearing their stripes in the Playhouse auditorium.

Our Artistic Director, Giles Croft, gave us an overview of his autumn drama highlights both of which he is directing; Oscar Wilde’s much loved play, The Importance of Being Earnest and John Steinbeck’s masterpiece, Of Mice and Men.

We also heard from The Cutting Room, who are curating three free exhibitions of new digital work responding to productions throughout 2012, and enjoyed live music from Frankie Rudolph who will be performing as part of Live and Local in June.
