Quality Street

Northern Broadsides’ revival of J M Barrie’s farce Quality Street comes to Blackpool Grand from June 27 to July 1.

ThickSkin presents the true story of an 11-year-old unaccompanied asylum-seeker in How Not To Drown from March 15–17, The Royal Shakespeare Company march in May 16–20 with Shakespeare’s political thriller Julius Caesar and Dickens goes digital as Oliver Twist gets a re-telling from author and poet Michael Rosen in Unexpected Twist May 23–27.
