ON THE STAGE

Hampshire Life - - October -

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
