NOTES TO EDITORS
Nottingham Playhouse is dedicated to making bold and thrilling theatre in the heart of Nottingham and was named Regional Theatre of the Year in The Stage Awards 2019. In 2021, both Chief Executive Stephanie Sirr and Artistic Director Adam Penford featured in The Stage’s 100 and Stephanie Sirr was awarded the MBE for Services to Theatre in 2022.
Following two years of closure and disruption due to Covid, in which the theatre faced the challenge by creating new work and moving to digital platforms, Nottingham Playhouse reopened its doors in summer 2021 with an acclaimed production of Pam Gems’ Piaf, starring Jenna Russell in the title role, Mark Gatiss’s adaptation of A Christmas Carol, which completely sold out and transferred to The Alexandra Palace Theatre for a six-week run. This year the theatre has continued its triumphant return with a critically praised stage adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s Private Peaceful, which subsequently toured to venues across the country, Caroline Bird’s Red Ellen, the world premieres of Nathaniel Price’s First Touch, Styles and Drewe’s new musical Identical and packed houses for Adrian Scarborough’s adaptation of Alan Bennett’s The Clothes They Stood Up In.
Sitting alongside Goldilocks and The Three Bears, 2022 culminates with the legendary Playhouse Panto which this year is Dick Whittington. 2023’s programme begins with two co-productions that will subsequently tour throughout the country: Nesrin Alrefaai and Matthew Spangler’s adaptation of Christy Lefteri’s acclaimed novel The Beekeeper of Aleppo and Samson Hawkins’s Village Idiot, originally commissioned by Nottingham Playhouse.
Nottingham Playhouse believes that theatre should be accessible to everyone. Its Encore sessions created 2,240 engagements with over 50s in the past year and the Playhouse has continued to reach out to Nottingham’s communities, including young people and those who are at risk of being isolated or marginalised. Its Amplify programme – which seeks to inspire and support theatre-makers from the East Midlands – offers one-to-one sessions, panel discussions, open call outs and podcasts.
Nottingham Playhouse Trust Ltd relies on ticket sales for 75% of its income, and continues to fundraise through its Curtain Up appeal. It is a registered charity (no. 1109342).
