Age Recommendation 12+
Northumberland Theatre Company’s gothic adaptation of the Charles Dickens’ classic – Barnaby Rudge is absolutely a play for today. Set against the backdrop of the Gordon Riots of 1780, it is a story of mystery and suspense which begins with an unsolved double murder and develops to involve conspiracy, blackmail, abduction and retribution. Through the course of the play fathers and sons become opposed, apprentices plot against their masters, and there are violent clashes on the streets. And as London erupts into riot, Barnaby Rudge struggles to escape the curse of his own past. With its high drama, strange secrets and ghostly doublings, Barnaby Rudge is a powerful blend of historical realism and grotesque melodrama. Told through Stewart Howson’s unique adaptation this will be NTC at its physical and Gothic best!
“A triumph, the finest theatre I’ve seen for years, dynamic, powerful and highly enjoyable, two hours of riveting entertainment”
