Northern Stage is the largest producing theatre company in the North East of England, and we are very pleased that we are regarded as one of the top-ten UK producing theatres.


We have built a reputation for visually driven productions that attract new, young audiences, including Son of Man, Thumbelina and The Little Prince. We have always toured extensively throughout the UK and Europe, and last year our Participation team worked on On Top of The Town, a joint international production with groups of British and Dutch teenagers, which you can read more about here.


At the start of this year, we were proud to co-produce Robert Lepage's Lipsynch with Ex Machina and Théâtre San Frontières which lead to the UK's only performance of this incredible new work which is destined to return to these shows in a few years time in the form of a nine hour epic. As a result of this, members of our technical team were asked to join Robert and his company in Tenerife to help bring the production to life over there.


Besides producing our own work, we are dedicated to presenting the best in local, national and international theatre. Since we reopened we have hosted the likes of Forced Entertainment, Kneehigh, Protein Dance, Twisting Yarn, Ultima Vez, The Opera Group and National Theatre of Scotland. We seek to forge links between these exciting companies and the North East, enabling them to return time and time again to showcase the best that theatre has to offer.


Our Chief Executive, Erica Whyman, is excited about building partnerships with companies and practitioners throughout the UK and beyond. As part of her work, we will be proud to play host to renowned South African writer, actor and director John Kani, who will perform his award winning play Nothing But The Truth at Northern Stage. This forms part of the developing cultural partnership between South Africa and some of the most prestigious cultural enterprises across the North East.
