The new season at NST also features a major revival of the Pulitzer Prize nominated classic Two Trains Running by August Wilson, the spine chilling thriller Woman in Black, a new musical of the much loved film Amélie starring Strictly Come Dancing’s Danny Mac and Audrey Brisson and the critically acclaimed Fuel, National Theatre and Leeds Playhouse production of Barbershop Chronicles by Inua Ellams.
Sam Hodges, Director at Nuffield Southampton Theatres said,
“This Autumn and Winter season is all about bringing familiar and entertaining titles to Southampton with our trademark boldness. It is a season of incredible work, full of warmth and humour. One Man, Two Guvnors is one of the funniest shows of the last decade and our Pride and Prejudice (sort of) rips up the rule book! We’re proud to be producing both. Other highlights include three new musicals in Amelie, Friendsical and our world premiere Cinderella The Musical, a heart warming musical family treat perfect for Christmas, as well as the hit play Barber Shop Chronicles by our very own Associate Artist, the poet and playwright Inua Ellams.”
