A message from Ian McKellen:

I’m celebrating my 80th birthday by touring a new solo show to theatres I know well and a few that I don’t. The show starts with Gandalf and will probably end with an invitation to act with me on stage. In-between there will be anecdotes and acting. I open at my local arts centre in January and end up by August in Orkney.

Live theatre has always been thrilling to me, as an actor and in the audience. Growing up in Lancashire, I was grateful to those companies who toured beyond London and I’ve always enjoyed repaying that debt by touring up and down the country myself, with the RSC, the National Theatre, Prospect Theatre, the Actors’ Company, as well as with commercial productions.

I was first at the Playhouse in 1966 in the modern Russian play “The Promise” with Judi Dench and Ian McShane and I should always be grateful to Frank Dunlop our director. As a Visiting Fellow to neighbouring Worcester College I’m delighted to be back in support of the Playhouse’s Offstage Fund, working with thousands of children across the county each year.

See you there, I hope!

  • Brawn

    Wed 24 Apr

    Ryan lives in a world consumed by image and obsession, where selfworth is measured in muscle mass and self-improvement becomes self-destruction. Written and performed by Christopher Wollaton, Brawn is a raw, emotional play exploring a young man’s isolating battle with body image, male identity and the cost of perfection.

  • Richard III

    Tue 7 - Sat 11 May

    "What do I fear? Myself?" After decades of civil war, the nation hangs in the balance. Enter Richard, Duke of Gloucester, to change the course of history. Richard was not born to be a king, but he’s set his sights on the crown. So begins his campaign of deceit, manipulation and violence – and he’s killing it. Yet, behind his ambition lies a murderous desire to be loved. Tom Mothersda...
