A Northern Broadsides and New Vic Theatre Co-production.
9 fantastic Northern actors take on J.M. Barrie’s delightfully comic characters in this bittersweet comedy from Northern Broadsides and New Vic Theatre.
From the writer of Peter Pan, this delicious farce was such a sensation in its day that it gave its name to the UK’s most loved chocolates.
Phoebe Throssel (Paula Lane, Kinky Boots; Call the Midwife; Coronation Street) runs a school for unruly children on Quality Street. Ten years since a tearful goodbye, an old flame (Aron Julius, Death on the Nile; As You Like It) returns from fighting Napoleon. But the look of disappointment on his face when he greets an older, less glamorous Phoebe, spurs her to action.
She becomes the wild and sparkling Miss Livvy, a younger alter-ego who soon beguiles the clueless Captain. As their romance is rekindled, can she juggle both personas? Or will the deception scandalise the town and wreck any future with the man she loves?
Northern Broadsides and New Vic Theatre revive this hit regency comedy, stirring in a good helping of Yorkshire wit from the retired workers of the Halifax factory where Quality Street have been proudly made since 1936.
Think Bridgerton meets Inside the Factory.
