In 2018, we are presenting a season of exciting work across art forms, including theatre, dance, music, and literature. This includes eight major UK premieres from Europe and beyond, from new productions of classic 20th-century plays to innovative new writing. A thread of cultural and theatrical transformation runs throughout, linking prescient writing from Ibsen to Beckett to the issues playwrights are grappling with in the twenty-first century, and mirroring the changes that our beautiful theatre, built in 1898, has seen.
