North North North - opening

After rehearsals and development in Svalbard, Oslo, Oxford and Peterborough - our latest touring show  North North North opened at The Key Theatre on the 9 May!

“A witty and darkly poignant show”
@Jumped Up Theatre

“Wonderful, inventive storytelling - humorous, engaging and moving”

“Another excellent show. Funny and poignant in equal measure. A ‘must see’”.

“Absolutely terrific!”

“Director Alex Byrne has a sure hand with his material...we know that the end will not be a happy one but somehow we want history to rewrite itself…****

The show will tour in the UK in October 2013 and then go onto touring in Norway and festivals in 2014 onwards. Check out the website for more touring details!

Last week of North North North rehearsals

It’s a great time for NIE, our rehearsal residency in Peterborough at the Key Theatre has neatly coincided with the warmest weather anyone’s seen in months. So in between conjuring sub-zero temperatures, shivering, donning multiple layers and yelling over the sound of the icy wind, we’ve been having picnic lunches in the sunshine on Peterborough embankment.

One half of set design team Bicat&Rigby- Kate has had a colourful few weeks, browsing local shops for taxidermy pigeons, suspending maps from the ceiling of the Key Theatre studio and not infrequently finding herself covered in PVA glue.

We received some great feedback from our open rehearsal last week and are now in the final countdown with one day until the premiere. Though the time’s gone by unnervingly fast, we’re looking forward to it. Jump into your preferred mode of transport, be it car, train or sled - don a moustache, and get yourself to Peterborough to see North North North this week!
