We’re upgrading our systems!

We’re pleased to let you know that we’ll have a brand new website and booking system ready for you shortly. It’s something our team have been working on for a long time, and not even COVID-19 could stop us in bringing you this new and improved online experience.

Whilst we are making the necessary changes behind the scenes, we are unable to take any bookings and you won’t be able to login into your account at this time. We expect the new site to be up and running on/around Friday 25 September, so please check back then.

Many thanks for your patience and support at this time.

Welcome to Shadow City, hellhole of a city but a city nonetheless. Detective Jay Walker is dead. With no leads and a case colder than ice, it’s up to his ex partner Patrick Wolf to bust some heads and find out who killed him.

Armed with just a chair, Lewis Doherty mimes every prop, makes every sound effect and brings to life over thirty characters in this cyberpunk, neon-noir, one man action packed blockbuster movie!

Lewis is an East Midlands based actor, writer, and theatre- maker and current Associate Artist at
Nottingham Playhouse. The North Wall is an arts centre in Oxford led by Co-Directors Ria Parry and John Hoggarth. The venue’s ArtsLab programme provides residential opportunities for early-career artists to learn new skills and develop new work.

WOLF is part of the Nottingham Playhouse Unlocked festival of live and livestreamed shows. There is a strictly limited number of tickets to watch the event in person at Nottingham Playhouse, or purchase an e-ticket to watch the livestream at home.
