The Nottingham New Theatre

The end is nigh…

Posted on: December 1st, 2012 by Charlotte Sanders

Somehow, we are already nearing the end of the Autumn season but fear not there is still lots to come – five more shows between now and the Christmas break to be exact!

This week you’re in for a treat like no other with Jack, aged 5 and 1/2Jack, aged 5 and 1/2

The fourth offering of the UNCUT season promises to be just as exciting as those that have come before it. Emma recounts her childhood and her less than perfect relationship with her two brothers, Ben and Jack. This is a poignant and amusing play about childhood and acceptance, with challenging child characterisation by a great team of actors and a strong director, and some light-sabre fights and snakes and ladders games thrown in for good measure.

Nostalgic, humorous and a nice mix of dark and gentle subject matter. Student written and beautifully executed this really isn’t one to miss out on!

3rd & 4th of December, performed in The Nottingham New Theatre Studio (one of our new spaces)
Doors are at 6.30pm for a 7pm start and remember tickets are just £3.

Also this week: Jerusalem by Jez Butterworth

From Wednesday you can join infamous scumbag Johnny Rooster Byron and a host of other outcasts as they fight back against their local village council. It’s the day of the annual village fete and Johnny’s just been evicted from his dilapidated caravan in the middle of the woods. Vivid characters. Fast-paced, anarchic dialogue. A woodland set complete with a real smashed up caravan. What’s not to love?!

Kicking off this Wednesday 5th December and running until Saturday 8th December.

Doors will be at 7pm for a 7.30pm start and there will also be a matinee performance on Saturday with doors at 2pm.

Remember tickets are £4 for members, £5 for concessions (students, staff and over 60’s) and £8 for members of the public. Booking in advance is strongly recommended!
