We’re delighted to announce that another one of our Made In Northampton productions will be transferring to London, when Our Lady Of Kibeho opens the Theatre Royal Stratford East‘s Autumn season. The acclaimed production of Our Lady of Kibeho from award-winning playwright Katori Hall and directed by our Artistic Director James Dacre, presents a haunting insight into true events in Rwanda that captured the world’s attention.
This follows on the recent news that three more its productions will be transferring to the West End over the coming months, including co-production with The Wardrobe Ensemble, Education, Education, Education, which opens at the West End’s Trafalgar Studios from Friday 31 May. Our much-loved 2018 Christmas show, The Worst Witch, based on Jill Murphy’s popular children’s books, has been touring the country since January and now heads to Vaudeville Theatre for a summer season running from 24 July. And Touching the Void, based on Joe Simpson’s harrowing mountaineering memoir, which was a co-production with Bristol Old Vic, Royal Lyceum Edinburgh and Fuel starts it’s West End run at the Duke of York’s Theatre in November.
Our Chief Executive Jo Gordon commented: “We’re absolutely thrilled that four of our productions will reach an even wider audience this year as they take to their respective London stages. We are proud of this achievement and excited to showcase the brilliant work going on in Northampton. I want to also share my huge thanks and congratulations to all the people whose hard work contributed to this success”.
