A new production of Mark Twain’s The Prince and The Pauper is to be the Christmas 2019 show at the New Vic Theatre, Newcastle-under-Lyme.

It will be adapted and directed by New Vic artistic director Theresa Heskins and brought to life by the team behind the theatre’s adaptations of Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson in 2017, Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen which won the UK Theatre Award for best show for children and young people in 2016, and Mary Norton’s The Borrowers in 2014.

The Prince and The Pauper will run at the New Vic from Saturday 16 November until Saturday 25 January 2020.
