The Dukes 2024 spring season

The Dukes has announced a programme of visiting productions and a new family festival.

The main stage will feature shows from imitating the dog’s Frankenstein to Barrie Rutter's Shakespeare's Royals to an adaptation of classic ghost stories with Casting the Runes.

In its new Moor space, An Attempt to Lose Time weaves quantum physics, climate change and a live Rube Goldberg machine assembly, the glitzy and dangerous world of online gambling in shown in Gamble, while there will be a collision of the sacred and profane in The Witness, inspired by the Gospel of Mary Magdalene.

A new family festival in April will include cinema, theatre, storytelling and workshops, including Spot's Birthday, The Not So Big Bad Wolf, Claytime, Club Origami, Les Enfants Terribles and Shark in the Park with more to be announced.
