Antigone – Cast announced and tickets on sale now!

A rarely-performed version of Antigone by Bertolt Brecht, this production is being made exclusively for digital streaming. Staged in the theatre with a full professional cast alongside a chorus of students from The University of Exeter Drama Department. Originally planned as a live show, we decided to pivot to a digital event when the second lockdown was announced.

Community Commissions Announced!

We’re delighted to support two community initiatives, bringing people together to get creative.

Amy Hopwood’s Duryard Songwriting Project will draw together a group of residents living in the Duryard area, and support them to write, sing, record and share their own neighbourhood song.

Johanna Korndorfer’s Seeding Ideas Kiosk, is a co-commission with Exeter Seed Bank which will enable seed-swapping and seed storytelling to take place in schools, parks, festivals and on any street.

In Search of Rainbows: Call-Out for Lockdown Footage and Images!

Part of The Time (for change) Is Now, Hannah Baxter-Freeman is creating a short film looking back on lockdown experiences; moments of happiness captured throughout this whirlwind year. In Search of Rainbows will showcase a reflective monologue, original music and… your videos and photos!

Delving into the Past to Shape our Future

Dating back to 1967 the extensive Northcott archive includes posters, programmes, board minutes, photographs and many other artefacts that convey a range of perspectives of the theatre’s story so far.  A number of interns have been working closely with Special Collections at the University of Exeter to identify items that resonate with them and would be compelling conversation-starters about the role of theatre now. With the archive as a starting point, we have planned a number of events to explore our history and spark debate about emerging themes.
