Productions

The Flint Street Nativity
by Tim Firthdirected by Ben Hopwood
Wednesday 7th – Saturday 10th November 2018
Upstairs @ The Carriageworks

Mizzis Horrocks’ class of seven year olds is about to perform their nativity play at Flint Street Junior School for the proud mums and dads – and the occasional social worker.

Squabbles arise when Gabriel wants to play Mary, the Star grumbles that he’s not a proper star like they have at NASA, Herod won’t stop waving to his mum and dad, and the subversive Innkeeper is determined to liven up the traditional script.

And then the class pet escapes...

Tickets are on sale, available from the City Centre Box Office in the Town Hall and, before performances, from the Carriageworks Box Office in the Electric Press building on Millennium Square. Please call in person, or telephone 0113 376 0318. You can also book your tickets online.
Hamlet
by William Shakespearedirected by Ken Taylor
Thursday 7th – Saturday 9th February 2019
The Carriageworks Main Space

Prince Hamlet’s father, the King of Denmark, is dead.

Hamlet is prevented from succeeding to the throne by his mother, Queen Gertrude, too quickly marrying his father’s brother, Caludius, who becomes king in his place. Not only is Hamlet prevented from becoming king, but his uncle Claudius is now his stepfather.

When the old king appears as a ghost, he tells Hamlet that he was, in fact, murdered by Claudius. Hamlet is entreated by his father’s ghost to take revenge. He schemes to do so by appearing to become mad, and alienating all who love him. It sometimes seems that he has truly lost his sanity.

Claudius himself, fearing discovery of his fratricide, lays out plans to do away with Hamlet. The scene is set. Tragedy looms.
