The Nottingham New Theatre

What’s On This Week!

Posted on: March 4th, 2013 by Charlotte Sanders

This week the Nottingham New Theatre is presenting two fantastic shows!

Starting this Wednesday is Willy Russell’s ‘Stags and Hens’. A comedy with a poignant commentary on the dilemma of societal expectations as relevant today as it when it was conceived, in 1978. Linda and Dave are supposedly getting married, and it’s the night of their Stag and Hen parties respectively, hilarity ensues.

For more information take a look at our What’s On Page.

WASTED by Kate Tempest

Also this week, we are very excited to be welcoming Paines Plough, the UK’s national theatre of new plays, to the Nottingham New Theatre Stage for one night only!

They’ll be performing their critically acclaimed production of WASTED by Kate Tempest.

WASTED is the debut play by poet and rapper Kate Tempest. Following a critically acclaimed 42 date national tour and sold-out run at London’s Roundhouse, WASTED is back on tour and heading to our very own little Nottingham New Theatre….

I’m making a decision. I’m changing things. This is it.

Three old friends. One remarkable day. For Ted, Danny and Charlotte, life will never be the same again.

A day glo trip through the parks and raves and cafes of South London, where life is what you make it. The words of Kate Tempest paint a picture of lives less ordinary in an unforgiving world, soundtracked by an exhilarating score.

A play about life, love and losing your mind.

This one-off performance will be taking place on Thursday 7th March at 9:45pm – right after that evening’s performance of our (equally brilliant) Main Season show, Stags and Hens by Willy Russell, which will be starting slightly earlier than normal at 7pm. Tickets for WASTED will be £5.

So, you can either can come to see both productions on that night (a special dual-ticket will be available at a discount rate of just £8 for members OR you spread out your theatrical delights for the week and see Stags and Hens another evening. If you would like the dual ticket, please make this clear in your e-mail to
