ON THE STAGE
Telling the interwoven stories of three men coming home from war, The Unreturning is a new work by Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting winner Anna Jordan, produced by Frantic Assembly. In a British northern coastal town, three young men are coming home from war. Their stories, set at different times over the last 100 years, are beautifully interwoven in this compelling new play featuring Frantic’s celebrated physicality. October 9-13, Nuffield Southampton Theatre Campus.
Also at the Nuffield City Theatre this month, Tom Burke stars in this double edged story of loyalty, love and friendship, and the abuses of power and statesmanship. Don Carlos faces the most profound of dilemmas. In a cruel twist of fate, his former fiancé and the love of his life, Elizabeth, has recently become his stepmother. His father and usurper is the tyrannical Philip II. Abandoned by both man and decree, Don Carlos must fend for himself. October 23 to 3 November, Nuffield City Theatre
