RICHARD III by William Shakespeare
Directed by Barrie Rutter
Designed by Neil Murray

Viaduct Theatre from Tues May 30th to Sat June 3rd at 7.30pm. (Mat on June 3rd at 2.00pm)

England is in the midst of the Wars of the Roses when Richard, Duke of Gloucester, sees a chance for the crown. He is Shakespeare’s twisted villain who we love to hate as, with ruthless cunning and silver-tongued charm, he stops at nothing to remove brothers, wife, nephews and friends from his path.
As the death toll mounts, Richard seizes the throne, but at what cost? He’s surrounded by vengeful ghosts, friends he can’t trust and a terrible curse cast by the old Queen Margaret. In a final battle at Bosworth Field, the bloody feud between York and Lancaster must end at last.
2017 marks twenty-five years of Northern Broadsides, and this co-production with Hull Truck Theatre brings the celebrated company back to its roots, when it staged Richard III as its first play in the Marina Boatshed in Hull.

Join us for a wonderfully poetic 25th Birthday celebration – the play that launched Northern Broadsides.

Northern Broadsides: Cyrano
Northern Broadsides in partnership with New Vic Theatre, Newcastle-under-Lyme, present:

CYRANO - An exciting new adaptation by award-winning playwright Deborah McAndrew ('An August Bank Holiday Lark') of Edmond William classic romantic comedy 'Cyrano de Bergerac'.

9th to 13th May 2017 at 7.30pm (Sat 13th May Matinee at 2.30pm).

Set in the golden age of musketeers, Deborah McAndrew’s lively new adaptation brings fresh vigour to this swashbuckling tale of unrequited love.

Add to this Northern Broadsides’ musical panache, acclaimed charisma and exuberant performance style and you have a delightful evening of pure drama that will lift your spirits and make your heart ache.

Director Conrad Nelson says: “The adaptation embraces the poeticism of Rostand’s drama, but does not confine itself to regular rhyming couplets of the original. Poetry and prose combine in this vibrant, funny, romantic and heartbreaking adaptation. Debbie McAndrew has created a carefully crafted version that marries the energy and vibrancy of youth with the romance and classicism of the original.”

Tickets from £18/£16 concs.

The Dean Clough Lego brick model
The Dean Clough Lego brick model will eventually use around a million bricks, be 35 foot long and have a chimney that's over 7 foot high.

RIGHT NOW, though, it's a 'mere' 15 foot long... and actually it's still pretty stunning.

Lego modellers Michael LeCount and Tony Priestman are at present studiously crafting the landscape around the East end of the half-mile site that used to be the world's largest carpet mill. You can see how it is progressing - for free - at any time during the normal gallery hours of 9.30am to 5.00pm, seven days a week.
