Welcome to our 2018/19 season of home-grown Made in Northampton productions.

Our Made In Northampton 2019 season opens with a spectacular new play from Olivier Award-winner Katori Hall. Our Lady Of Kibeho tells the astonishing true story of how three Rwandan schoolgirls forever changed their school, their community and their country.

We then premiere 2017 Nobel Prize winner Kazuo Ishiguro’s wartime portrait of memory, regret and undeclared love, The Remains Of The Day, and a stunning new version of Ibsen’s Ghosts by Mike Poulton, who returns to the Royal following the success of A Tale Of Two Cities.

In the Summer, we bring Shakespeare’s iconic East Midlands story of Richard III to life on the Royal stage before then introducing legendary American playwright August Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated Two Trains Running to UK-wide audiences for the first time. All these productions bring together local talent with leading artists from across the world to create entirely original work here in Northampton.

We look forward to welcoming you to Royal & Derngate soon.
