- Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre, Storyhouse Stage
Opening May 2017 after a decade long absence of a city centre cinema and theatre, Storyhouse is the UK’s largest regional arts project under construction. It will open with a run of four home-produced shows, performed in rep, by a company of 26 of the country’s finest actors.
The theatre will open with a riotous new musical based on The Beggar’s Opera, the premiere of playwright Glyn Maxwell’s joyful new adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, Shakespeare’s brutal political thriller Julius Caesar and comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream. All of the productions will premiere on the 500-seat wrap-around “Storyhouse Stage” – one of two formats for the main theatre.
The entire run, from 11 May – 27 August, presents one of the UK’s most ambitious theatre seasons. The four shows are spread right across the summer and, uniquely, audiences will be able to choose between seeing productions in the new theatre, and in Storyhouse’s award-winning Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre. Alice, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Julius Caesar transfer in to Grosvenor park for the height of summer, whilst The Beggar’s Opera continues inside.
