dracula web

Presented by La Navet Bete in association with Exeter Northcott Theatre

STOP!

Stop what you’re doing and read this very carefully. Your life may depend on it…

This critically acclaimed, multi five star awarded hilarious comedy will be presented by Professor Abraham Van Helsing and his three idiotic actors as they stage a life-changing, theatrical production surrounding the true events of Dracula. Will they pull if off? It’s highly unlikely!

With four actors playing over forty characters and directed by one of the UK’s most exciting comedy directors, John Nicholson, Dracula: The Bloody Truth will make you die laughing.

Devon based, award winning Le Navet Bete are committed to creating hilarious, physical and family friendly comedy using creative and engaging storytelling.

After bringing Dick Tracy to The Dukes three years ago we welcome them back with great anticipation.

LUNG in association with Leeds Playhouse 
By Helen Monks and Matt Woodhead

“Why should I continue to be tolerant? When the world has been so intolerant of me.”

Amnesty International Freedom of Expression and Fringe First Award winners LUNG (E15, The 56 and Chilcot) follows the real life stories of Muslim teachers and governors who were accused of plotting extremism in Birmingham schools.

Trojan Horse was a local story that hit the national press, accusing ‘hardline’ Muslim teachers and governors of plotting extremism in Birmingham schools. Adapted from the real-life testimonies of those at the heart of the UK

Government’s inquiry, critically acclaimed theatre company LUNG investigate what really happened. Originally developed with Leeds Playhouse, Trojan Horse is the story of a community torn apart by racial division, ‘British values’ and the culture of Prevent.

Making theatre with communities, by communities and for communities, LUNG is a national touring theatre company, developing innovative and politically driven work that broadens horizons and investigates modern Britain.

This play is based on real life events but some names have been changed. It is adapted from over 200 hours of interviews conducted by LUNG as well as public documents and contains words spoken by individuals who participated in public hearings, it is not endorsed or authorised by them.

“Perhaps the bravest and most astutely political of shows on up in Edinburgh this year in LUNG’s Trojan Horse. Piercing, relevant, terrifying and beautifully told…”

Cinderella @ The Dukes
Nov 3 @ 2:00 pm

Cinderella 2019

Presented by The Dukes
By Sally Cookson, Adam Peck and the original company
Directed by Sarah Punshon

Join us at The Dukes this Christmas for Cinderella: A Fairytale. Created by the team who brought you Aladdin and Peter Pan, it’s a classic story with a thoroughly modern twist – the perfect festive treat for all the family to enjoy.

Following the tragic death of her father, Ella is set to work by her stepmother and forced to sleep by the fireplace with the cinders. With no-one to turn to, her only way out lies with the magical birds she finds in the forest.

With the help of her feathered friends, Ella disobeys her stepmother and dons her best party frock and sparkling Doc Marten boots to sneak off to the Palace to dance the night away – including with a prince!

But when Ella gets the fright of her life and flees, leaving one solitary boot behind, will the prince ever find her again – and will the boot fit?

Cinderella: A Fairytale is the first new version of Sally Cookson and Adam Peck’s adaptation of this classic tale since its initial award-winning production by Tobacco Factory Theatre and Travelling Light in Bristol.

The Hound of the Baskervilles @ The Dukes
Nov 6 @ 7:45 pm

Hound of The Baskervilles A4 Landscape wText

A Northern Stage production

A hound it was, an enormous coal-black hound, but not such a hound as mortal eyes have ever seen…

Charles Baskerville is dead, and a terrifying beast is rumoured to stalk the moors around the remote Baskerville mansion.

When Sherlock Holmes sends Doctor Watson to investigate, Watson finds himself surrounded by dense fog and a community steeped in folklore, legend and rumour, where the line between reality and myth is no longer clear.

Following the sell-out success of H.G. Wells’ The War Of The Worlds, Northern Stage presents Sherlock Holmes’ most infamous case, adapted from Arthur Conan Doyle’s Gothic classic.

Jonny & The Baptists: Love Lancaster and Hate Bastards @ The Dukes

Jonny & The Baptists

Presented by Avalon

We live in a divided world, and we want to cross that divide. But how can we be popular now ‘populist’ means ‘I’m a shit’? Answer: WE LOVE EVERYONE. Oh, except bastards. Everyone hates bastards, right? We agree.

Multi-award nominated musical-activist-comedians, Jonny & The Baptists, are sick of being political and divisive.

This show is about how everything is definitely fine. Let’s just get along!
