It’s going to be a comedy-filled Summer at the Northcott!

Who’s ready for a Summer filled with laugh-out-loud theatre?!

This August and September, we’re thrilled to present three back-to-back comedy theatre shows!

First up is the return of Mischief, a company dedicated to giving audiences “the opportunity to break free from the shackles of everyday life and escape to a world of carefully choreographed chaos, merry mishaps and timeless comedy”. Expect exactly that from The Play that Goes Wrong, an international smash hit hailed “a gut-busting hit” by the New York Times.

Didn’t get a chance to see Treasure Island over Christmas? Local comedy favourites Le Navet Bete are reprising the show – which The Stage called “a ripping good yarn with an abundance of theatrical surprises”, and which has been nominated for best event at this year’s Exeter Living Awards – for every adventurer, treasure hunter and scallywag who missed the boat last December.

And the fun doesn’t end there! We’re also bringing back sell-out success The Three Musketeers – A Comedy Adventure. Featuring hilarious heroics, raucous romances and some bonkers fun with BMX bikes, Le Navet Bete condense Dumas’ 700-page classic into two hours of non-stop comedy gold, hailed “a 5-star adventure” by Reviewshub.

Award-winning Comedy this Summer
