Richmond-based North Country Theatre will shortly pay their annual visit to Helmsley Arts Centre with this year’s touring production, “Nightmares in Norfolk”, a double dose of terrifying tales, one told tongue in cheek and one… straight down the line!
Oh, whistle and I’ll come to you by M. R. James.
Adapted by Nobby Dimon
The Signalman by Charles Dickens.
Adapted by Simon Corble
Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon created the original adaptation of the hilarious “The 39 Steps” which went on to be an international hit. Here they bring different approaches to the challenge of staging the supernatural.
Even the most sceptical, the most rational scientific mind, may have moments when something happens that seems to defy the laws of nature, when the wild landscapes of our dreams and nightmares seem to intrude on reality, when coincidence seems to be stretched to breaking point.
Based in the Yorkshire Dales, North Country Theatre specialises in taking professional theatre out into the country, touring to village halls, small theatres, arts centres, churches, auction marts, castles, railway waiting rooms, hotels, gardens, almost anywhere in fact.
Nightmares in Norfolk will be at Helmsley Arts Centre for one night only, on Friday September 29. If you miss it, there are lots of other opportunities, including the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough on Tuesday November 21: visit the NCT website for a full list of all 47 performances.
