Performing in the round

A youth theatre group will be taking to the stage with a difference this week.

Alnwick Playhouse’s senior youth theatre group will be performing Bronte, a 2005 play by British playwright Polly Teale, about the Brontë sisters, their brother Branwell and their father Patrick tonight and tomorrow.

But instead of performing on stage they will be doing so from the pit in front of the stage with the audience on the stage and the first four rows of seats. Performances are at 7.30pm. Tickets £5 from 01665 510785 or www.alnwickplayhouse.co.uk for tickets.
