Northcott Young Company presents

The Back End of the Cow and Other Stories

  • Show Information

The Back End of the Cow and Other Stories sees young people from the Northcott Young Company interpret memories from the theatre’s past while looking ahead to the future. This promenade style performance will guide the audience away from the stage through backstage areas, sharing voices and stories as they go. From scenes that show the funny sides of theatre life to more poignant moments in the Northcott’s history, NYC will interpret the stories they’ve gathered and speculate on their own part in making the archive of the future.


Please be aware that as the piece will involve walking, stairs and some standing, it may not be suitable for those with mobility issues. If you are uncertain about whether this will be an issue for you, please contact our Box Office team for more info (boxoffice@exeternorthcott.co.uk or 01392 72 63 63).

This performance will also be filmed, and made available online at a later date.
