The Festival of the North East launched its programme – it is impressive

Details HERE    My favourite theatre events include:

TYNE Take a journey, in time and space, along the banks of the Tyne and delight in tales, music and imagery which map the epic history of this mighty river.  Commissioned as part of Live Theatre’s 40th birthday celebrations, Tyne is a new play featuring the stories of the some of the greatest writers of the North East who’ve worked with and at Live Theatre since it began in 1973.

THE ANSWER TO EVERYTHING  Streetwise Opera’s 10th anniversary film and opera commission featuring new music and a film cast of 100 Streetwise Opera performers who have experienced homelessness.

THE GB PROJECT Fusing fragments of text gathered from diaries, letters and biographies, alongside contemporary voices, speeches and iconic film footage of this 19th century female adventurer, this show explores the impact of Western women on shaping the modern day Middle East, and raises questions about history, legacy, loyalty and love.
And of course we will be working like crazy to make Searching for a City of Sanctuary an amazing event
