What's on in Nottz Theatreland

It's Not Rocket Science
by Cecilia Alexander
Edinburgh Showcase

New Theatre Nottingham

2nd Oct

'It’s a man’s world' they say, looking at Earth. But beyond that, the vast expanse we call ‘space’, is largely unknown, unclaimed; a free for all. At least, it could be if my boss stopped calling me ‘sweetheart’. Eve always knew she belonged in the stars, but those on Earth keep bringing her down. Watch her grow up and grow wiser about how rocket science is the easy part, but being treated equally isn’t.

Treasure Island
The Kaleidoscope Players
The Duchess Theatre, Lomg Eaton
28th - 30th Oct

Treasure Island (originally titled The Sea Cook: A Story for Boys) is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold".

Its influence has been popular on its perceptions of pirates, including such elements as treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulders.

2021-22 season
Robin Hood Theatre

The Board convened (again!) to discuss dates for the coming season. We agreed that it would be sensible to wait until September before committing to a full production but hope to put on something in June or July depending on the situation. As you will see, we have shunted some postponed plays to later this year and even into 2022. We have also chosen some new titles, based on recommendations from our play reading group.
