The SJT on tour

By Christopher York
Directed by Paul Robinson

18 - 23 September | The Caledonian Express Festival, Pleasance Islington

'Scarborough is turning into Tenerife.
This is global warming gone wrong.
This isn't the story of Icarus and Daedalus.
It's Yasmin and Jack.
And we won't fly too close to the sun.
We'll fly through the f**ker.'

Yasmin is young, feisty and living on the edge in Scarborough. She's been dealt a rough hand and has to decide whether to give in or get smart. But can the thing which threatens to ruin her life be the one thing which saves her?

By arrangement with Edward Snape for Fiery Angel Limited
John Buchan and Alfred Hitchcock's

11 - 22 September | Theatre Clwyd, Mold

This Olivier award-winning thriller – which started its life right here in North Yorkshire - will receive its in-the-round UK premiere at the SJT. Patrick Barlow’s adaptation of the legendary movie played for nine years in London’s West End before playing for two years on Broadway and then in over thirty-nine countries. It is a brilliant, fast-moving spoof including legendary scenes such as the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape from the Forth Bridge, the first ever theatrical bi-plane crash and a death-defying (well nearly) finale.

Written & directed by Alan Ayckbourn

9 - 27 October | New Vic, Newcastle-under-Lyme

31 October - 10 November | Old Laundry Theatre, Bowness-on-Windermere

Joking Apart
For Richard and Anthea everything in life just falls into place. Perhaps it’s inevitable that the others suffer by comparison. Quiet misery, unrequited love and jealousy play their part in this painfully funny comedy. Laugh until it hurts at this 40th anniversary production of an Ayckbourn classic.

Better Off Dead
Highly irascible author Algy Waterbridge is hard at work on his 33rd crime novel featuring blunt Yorkshire cop DCI Tommy Middlebrass. With constant interruptions, it’s almost the last straw when old acquaintance Gus Crewe turns up to interview him with alarming consequences. Alan Ayckbourn's latest play is a comedy of confusion about an grumpy old man who might not be so grumpy after all.
