New Diorama have curated the very best theatre shows from their supported ensembles, and programmed them together for the first time, to create an unmissable season of new work – to be presented in Week 2 of VAULT Festival 2019 (30 Jan – 03 Feb).
The NDT Takeover is headlined by an electrifying production of The Talented Mr. Ripley (from 13 – 17 Mar) and begins with a week of hit shows, presented back-to-back in the Crescent…
by Silent Uproar
Co-produced by 2017 Hull City of Culture, written by Olivier Award-winner Jon Brittain and half of cabaret duo Freaky and Manish, we present Silent Uproar’s A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad). This Fringe First award-winning musical is a whirlwind of comedy, songs and glitter about how it’s OK not to be OK.
★★★★★ “You’ll be hard-pushed to find a better musical”
by Nouveau Riché
They stormed the Edinburgh Fringe, won the Underbelly Untapped Award and The Stage Award in 2018, and now they’re going to be playing to their biggest audiences yet! Nouveau Riche’s sell-out hit Queens of Sheba is four Black Woman sharing their explosive true stories of misogynoir, music, nights out and, of course, (white) men.
★★★★ “gloriously entertaining”
by Kill the Beast
The wait is over! Multi-award winning comedy troupe Kill The Beast are finally brining their 1970s horror movie-set, comedy to London for an extended run. Director’s Cut welcomes you to the worst film never made. Thankfully there’s only one scene left to shoot…
★★★★ “a triumph. Ridiculous to the point of absurdity, funny, well-timed and parodic, this comedy-horror is sure to make audiences laugh out loud.”
by The Pretend Men
For two nights only, the mighty Pretend Men return from touring the world to present their hit comedy blockbuster Police Cops: an hour of action-packed, adrenaline fuelled physical comedy, cinematic style (feat. uncompromising facial hair).
★★★★★ “unbeatable physical cop parody”
by The Faction
Headlining the NDT/VAULT take-over, is The Faction’s unmissable adaptation of The Talented Mr Ripley, breathing fresh life into Patricia Highsmith’s extraordinary psychological thriller on ambition, escapism, and murder – as New Yorker Tom Ripley cons and murders his way across 1950s Italy.
★★★★ “yet another bold achievement for a very talented ensemble”
