Wednesday 8 – Sunday 12 June

Directed by Declan Donnellan Designed by Nick Ormerod Following its triumphant UK Tour in 2007, Cheek by Jowl’s stellar Russian ensemble returns to Nottingham with Chekhov’s sweeping love story, Three Sisters. Arguably the greatest play of the Twentieth Century, Three Sisters tells the tale of Olga, Irina and Masha whose lives are turned upside down by the arrival of glamorous officer Vershinin in their remote town. Their eternal struggle to live and to love is charted with Chekhov’s sharp eye and unfailing humanity. ‘I cannot imagine a more delicate, luminous and emotionally piercing production... Heartbreaking simplicity’ The Times ‘Gorgeously observed... Unlike so many other stagings of Chekhov, which can leave you with the impression that you’ve passed through a reverent museum exhibit, this one exudes immediacy, the idea that these neurotic, excitable people from another place and time breathe the same oxygen as you’ The Washington Post ‘Chekhov’s characters, whom we think we know all too well, suddenly burst open, dazzlingly and unforgettably. No one other than Donnellan could have achieved this. He is the first and the unrepeatable’ Kommersant, Russia

The Pitmen Painters By Lee Hall

Originally produced by Newcastle’s acclaimed Live Theatre, and following sell-out seasons at the National Theatre and on Broadway, the award-winning The Pitmen Painters embarks on a national tour prior to the West End. Written by Lee Hall, creator of Billy Elliot, and directed by Max Roberts, The Pitmen Painters won the 2008 Evening Standard Award for ‘Best New Play’.

www.trch.co.uk

In 1934, a group of Ashington miners hired a professor to teach an art appreciation evening class. Rapidly abandoning theory in favour of practice, the pitmen began to paint. Within a few years the most avant-garde artists became their friends and their work was acquired by prestigious collections; but every day they worked, as before, down the mine.

Box Office: 0115 989 5555

The Pitmen Painters is a thought–provoking drama which takes a humorous, deeply moving and timely look at art, class and politics. ‘Lee Hall’s new play and Max Roberts’ sublime production are ablaze with intellectual vigour, political passion and incendiary emotional energy. The Times ‘A wonderful piece of theatre: comic, sad and stirring in the same breath’ Financial Times

Fur Coat and No Knickers

A comic family feud; a disastrous stag do; a drunken priest and a wedding... Following the recent success of his hilarious Murdered to Death, Classic Thriller Season Director Colin McIntyre adapts and directs the Mike Harding comedy Fur Coat and No Knickers.

Box Office: 0115 989 5555

Two families from very different sides of the tracks are brought together with hilarious consequences as they gather for the wedding of Deirdre Ollerenshaw, and her husband-to-be Mark Greenhalgh (son of a wealthy businessman and councillor). Throw in Peter, an unpublished poet and part time anarchist, and Father Malloy, an ecclesiastical drunk, and the scene is set for madness and mayhem in this classic comedy romp. It’s certain to be ‘a bit of a do’.
