New Season of Theatre and Comedy at Live

The June to December season of Live Theatre’s 40th year has been launched, and there’s a great line-up of plays, comedy and music to look forward to.

Jim Beirne, Chief Executive of Live Theatre said: “The second half of the year has an exceptionally strong programme. I am delighted that Tyne by Michael Chaplin opens here in June as part of the Festival of the North East. In the autumn we produce Wet House, by an exciting new writer, Paddy Campbell, who has been nurtured by Live Theatre’s new writing programme. The play is a darkly funny tale of life in a homeless hostel full of alcoholics. We also welcome back Cooking with Elvis 15 years after it was first written and produced at Live Theatre, when Lee Hall was our writer-in-residence.”

The Ginge, The Geordie and The Geek

Apart from the headliners there are a number of productions from local talent in the Studio Theatre, including dark comedy Company by award winning north east writer Dick Curran. The comedy continues with Live Stand Up, sponsored by Potts Print (UK), with the return of The Ginge, The Geordie and The Geek (above) and a show by Richard Herring (below).

Potts is also supporting Live Lab, bringing the most exciting and experimental new plays to Live Theatre’s Studio space.

On top of all this there are opportunities to participate in writing and comedy workshops, plus live music presented by Jumpin’ Hot Club. See the Live Theatre website to find out what’s on.
