Following the success of last year’s schools tour, where over 13,000 young people saw the production, the specially staged 90-minute production of THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME will visit another 5 secondary schools in Doncaster in Autumn 2019.
The tour of Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel, adapted by Olivier-award-winning playwright Simon Stephens will visit new schools in these areas as well as returning to schools we have previously engaged with as we continue to build relationships with them and introduce theatre to different age groups.
The production is designed by Olivier and Tony Award-winner Bunny Christie and Tony Award-winning lighting designer Paule Constable. Movement is by Scott Graham and Olivier Award-winning Steven Hoggett for Frantic Assembly, music by Adrian Sutton (who also composed music for War Horse) and sound by Ian Dickinson for Autograph. The Associate Director is Anna Marsland. Casting will be announced later this year.
Schools Touring is supported by: The Mohn Westlake Foundation, The Garfield Weston Foundation, The Ingram Trust, Archie Sherman Charitable Trust, Behrens Foundation, Cleopatra Trust, Jill and David Leuw, Mulberry Trust and The Royal Victoria Hall Foundation.
In August 2020, Cast, Doncaster, one of the NT’s Theatre Nation Partner venues, will host the third Public Acts production, with a new version of THE CAUCASIAN CHALK CIRCLE by Bertolt Brecht, adapted for this project by Chris Bush. Directed by Associate Artistic Director of Slung Low James Blakey, the creative team will work alongside local community partners in Doncaster on this new interpretation of Brecht’s classic.
