Derby Theatre’s May–July 2014 season features plenty to entice theatregoers to its Studio.
Studio shows next season offer a wide and varied selection of theatre.
These include Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company with a newly commissioned piece by local playwright, Andy Barrett, The Second Minute; Caroline Horton, who presented Penelope RETOLD at Derby Theatre recently, will present, along with China Plate, her awardwinning You’re Not Like The Other Girls Chrissy, a tender, comic portrayal of one woman’s experience of love and war;
Johnny and The Baptists, an evening in the company of some of the UK’s hottest musical comedians; the edgy and moving one-man show which explores one of football’s biggest taboos, Away From Home; Derby Jazz featuring Corey Mwamba,
Dave Kane and Joshua Blackmore with Sunday afternoons of jazz music.
There will also be the sell-out smash hit of the Edinburgh Festival 2013, Hidden; highly-acclaimed Graeae with Signs of a Diva, which will include BSL signed songs, captioned text and audio description; Amanda Whittington’s poignant drama set in a mother and baby home in 1964, Be My Baby; award-winning comedy duo Heffernan & Fitch with their quirky sketch show-come-cabaret night Roll It In Sequins and Birmingham Repertory Theatre with Circles, a play which boldly explores violence on a generation of young women.
Family shows include Theatre Hullabaloo and Theatre Iolo with Luna, a starry night theatrical adventure suitable for 2–5 year olds, which sees Luna, the only moon in the sky, befriending a boy and together they go on an adventure of light and dark to help him overcome his fear of the night-time and A Transport and Unicorn production, 1001 Nights, a collection of some of the greatest folk tales ever told, perfect for ages six-plus, brought to life in a fantastical and imagined world of kings, viziers and jinns.
