Posted on 6 February, 2018 at 13:40

Finally, it’s here!

We are very pleased to announce the new 2018 Season at the Attic Theatre. We have a fantastic schedule of performances, both from our resident company Tread the Boards and some exciting visiting companies as well.

Here is the full list:

A Midsummer Night’s Dream – William Shakespeare

29th March – 22nd April

Love and magic in the woods of Athens. Lysander, Hermia, Helena and Demetrius all conspire to find love. While they caper around the woods, fairies are about and out to cause mischief! Tread the Boards put their own spin on 'The Dream', one of Shakespeare's most loved and well known stories. Tickets available now here.


Richard III – William Shakespeare

31st March – 22nd April

Richard III is a play about evil, violence and murder. It charts the rise of Richard, Duke of Gloucester, a cold-blooded and dastardly villain who slaughters his family and marries his victim's widow to become king. Tickets available now here.


Up 'N' Under – John Godber

26th April – 6th May

This story follows an inept pub Rugby League team from the Wheatsheaf Arms pub in a rugby league sevens competition in Kingston upon Hull. Ex-pro Arthur's only passions in life are his wife and rugby league. When he hears about the Cobblers Arms pub team and their corrupt manager, Arthur bets his life savings with Reg Welch that he can train any team to beat them


Movable Props – Nick Wilkes

10th - 20th May

An exciting piece of new writing from Nick Wilkes, who brought ‘To Build A Wooden O’ to the RSC Other Place in 2017. More information coming soon.


Poles Apart – John Godber

24th May – 3rd June

A funny and insightful comedy from the author of 'Teechers' and 'Bouncer'. Three workmen have set up their scaffolding on the theatre stage to do a small job repairing a leak. The Executive Director of the theatre has not been informed of their intentions (they are several weeks late). Over the course of the work the separation of these two worlds becomes increasingly obvious.


Pride and Prejudice – Adapted by John-Robert Partridge

12th June – 1st July

Pride and Prejudice is Jane Austen's humorous story of love and life among English gentility during the Regency. Mr Bennet is a gentleman living in Hertfordshire with his wily and loving wife. The Bennets have five daughters; the beautiful Jane, clever Elizabeth, bookish Mary, immature Kitty and the wild Lydia; all looking for a future path to take.


The Wizard of Oz - Adapted by John-Robert Partridge

31st July – 27th August

When a tornado rips through Kansas, Dorothy and her dog, Toto, are whisked away in their house to the magical land of Oz. They follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard, and en route they meet a Scarecrow that needs a brain, a Tin Man missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who wants courage. But all is not what it seems in the land of Oz.


Jane Eyre - Adapted by Catherine Prout

6th - 23rd September

Jane Eyre is Charlotte Bronte's story of an orphaned girl who lives with her aunt and cousins, the Reeds, at Gateshead Hall. Follow Jane through the twists and turns of fate, from a tormented young girl to a love-struck but headstrong woman.


Sweeney Todd - Adapted by John-Robert Partridge and Catherine Prout

11th October – 4th November

A brand new adaptation of a Victorian melodrama, based on the original Penny Dreadful. The 'demon barber' Sweeney Todd is out for blood and Mrs Lovett is only too willing to dispose of the evidence. What will become of the citizens of Fleet Street?


Lillies on the Land - The Lions Part

6th - 11th November

The story of 4 friends who sign up to become Land Girls, dealing with the harships of farm life and the pressures and losses of war. Funny, touching and captivating, this portrait of some of WW2's unsung heros is based on letters and stories from the original Land Girls. 

The Normal Way - Nick Wilkes

15th - 25th November

Another exciting collaboration with playwright Nick Wilkes, with a new piece of writing. For more information watch this space.
