The autumn season at Northern Stage features brand new takes on familiar favourites including a new production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and a contemporary spin on The Importance of Being Earnest.

New dramas explore race, the climate crisis, disability, queer politics and the experience of refugees, alongside family shows and nights out for fans of dance, comedy and cabaret.

There’s also chance to see award-winning shows audiences might have missed first time around, including Pilot Theatre’s stage adaption of Malorie Blackman’s Noughts & Crosses, balletLORENT’s family ballet Rapunzel and Northern Stage’s adventure set on the streets of Newcastle, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
