Northern Stage at St Stephen’s is a creative home for the most unusual and exciting theatre being made in the Greater North of England. It is a platform to showcase the work of some of the most inventive, innovative and exciting theatre makers from the North of England.
In 2012 and 2013 I worked with Northern Stage to curate, set-up and run this venue in Stockbridge during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
The 2012 programme was comprised of 163 performances, including Northern Stage’s Oh, the Humanity and Other Good Intentions, Third Angel and mala voadora’s What I Heard about the World, Daniel Bye’s The Price of Everything, Unfolding Theatre’s Best in the World, and Rash Dash’s The Ugly Sisters.
171 performances made up the 2013 programme, including Manchester Royal Exchange’s There Has Possibly Been an Incident (written by Chris Thorpe), Third Angel’s Cape Wrath, Daniel Bye’s How to Occupy an Oil Rig, and Northern Stage’s award-winning The Bloody Great Border Ballad Project.
