The Nottingham New Theatre

Enjoy Summer, See You Soon.

The sun is shining, the weather is sweet.

Another year has come and gone and what a year it turned out to be.

The Nottingham New Theatre changed it’s name and settled into it’s lovely new building. Boosted by improved infrastructure we  continued to produce outstanding shows (seventeen of them) and developed our UNCUT season into an exciting tool for new and experimental theatre. We were privileged to host Paines Plough’s production of Wasted and to write my essay for me work directly with The Lakeside Theatre in a joint production of Lysistrata.

Our membership satisfaction is at a constant high with weekly socials and events including a sports day, a boat party, a formal ball, countless pub quizzes and several fantastic evenings of music and dancing. Nottingham New Theatre Alumni have enjoyed two exclusive performances and we were thrilled to welcome both back recent alumni and those who were around at our theatres conception.

We would like to say a massive thank you to all our members for their commitment and their talent this year and we can’t wait to see everyone returning in assignment writers September and to also welcome new members to our theatre.


Looking forward to Edinburgh, we have two innovative shows heading to the fringe this year, Paradise and The Project. Find us at Zoo Monkey House at 8.25pm and prepare to experience something new….


The lives of eccentric strangers, including: an unorthodox hen night, a bickering couple, a folk band duo, a lad from Leeds and a nervous Frenchwoman collide, sometimes literally, on one unusual night on the London Underground. Devastation, disillusionment, gratitude and fame lies in their wake. This show was collaboratively devised and features multi-role acting, live music, masks and an innovative recycled moving set.

The Project

‘The Project’ centres on a dystopian theatre company that selects unknowing participants, who have committed a crime, and creates a show around the individual. The Company justifies its contentious methods by considering the show a form of rehabilitation for the participant, and an entirely unique entertainment for a disillusioned audience, in search of a ‘real’ form of art.
