Jarrow Hall has recently announced that Newcastle-based theatre company Northern Stage will be performing their touring production of The War of the Worlds for the first time in Jarrow on 13th October 2018.
The new critically-acclaimed production relocates H.G. Wells’ iconic novel to the North East in an inventive retelling of the sci-fi classic. Jarrow Hall is operated by Groundwork South Tyneside and Newcastle, which works with South Tyneside Council to ensure that the much-loved venue has a long-term future for the people of South Tyneside, the wider region and beyond. Northern Stage is the largest producing theatre company in the North East and is regarded as one of the most important producing theatres in the UK. The company has built a reputation for fresh and relevant productions of modern classics that attract audiences of all ages. Leigh Venus, Operations Manager at Groundwork South Tyneside and Newcastle, said: This is a really exciting new relationship that recognises the importance of investing in culture at Jarrow Hall. Working together we can deliver high quality events in the heart of South Tyneside right here at Jarrow Hall, events that enable a wide range of people from the local community and beyond to benefit from an increasingly exciting, vibrant and creative place.” Matt Runham, Senior Producer at Northern Stage, said: Northern Stage are delighted to be performing The War of the Worlds at Jarrow Hall in the Autumn.
