Following our Made In Northampton Christmas productions, we begin our new season with simple8 originating an epic staging of A Passage To India to mark the 75th anniversary of Indian independence before director Lucy Bailey reimagines Agatha Christie’s classic thriller Love From A Stranger in February.

In April we premiere a musical version of Oscar Wilde’s family favourite The Selfish Giant from one of Britain’s most successful songwriters, Guy Chambers, and then in May we welcome back our Fringe First and Stage Ensemble Award award-winning production of Education, Education, Education by The Wardrobe Ensemble. This Autumn the stage premiere of Alice Sebold’s iconic novel The Lovely Bones will be adapted by Bryony Lavery in a production by Melly Still and Joe Simpson’s memoir Touching The Void will be adapted by David Greig and directed by Tom Morris. 

All these productions will go on to play across the British Isles, having received their world premieres here in Northampton. Also, several more original productions will follow them from May onwards, which will be announced shortly as part of our full Made In Northampton 2018 season launch.
