Theatre

Fill your diaries with a whole host of entertainment, coming to the Trinity Theatre this season

Our spring season has given way to our summer schedule – and it’s one of our favourite times of the year here at Trinity! Situated in the beautiful building that we are, summer allows us to enjoy all that Trinity has to offer. Our stunning grounds are peaceful despite our central location, and there is the opportunity to enjoy a cold refreshment in the sunshine during the day or before a show. This season, to make the most of all this, we’ve ensured that we continue as we did in spring – with a huge variety of dramatic productions, comedy and music.

We’re set to welcome some exciting new shows to Trinity, including Beautiful Boy ( June 30), a brand new play devised about John Lennon. The play tells the incredible story of his early years before he entered the spotlight of popular musical history. Not only is our schedule bursting at the seams, but it would appear this is nationwide too, as we’re pleased to be screening some incredible productions from the RSC and National Theatre. Jude Law stars in Ivo van Hove’s Obsession (May 11) this month, while the enchanting and inventive Peter Pan ( June 11) screens later in the summer, directed by Sally Cookson.

Even as grown adults we cannot contain our excitement to welcome David Walliams’ First Hippo on the Moon (May 14) to Trinity. A charming production of his beloved children’s story, the show is adapted for the stage by acclaimed award-winning theatre company Les Petits.

With all this in mind, we encourage you to try something new with us this summer. With a busy cinema season, screening both award-winning and alternative films, we’re passionate about bringing stories from a wide spectrum of places to Trinity. Studying a language or heading abroad this summer? Come and see some of the foreign language films we’re showing. We’ve programmed releases, including Oscar-winning The Salesman (May 10), which tell incredible stories and are bound to be rewarding watches.

If you enjoy your experience here at Trinity and are enthusiastic about what we do, we’d love to see you more often! Now is a wonderful time to become a Friend of Trinity, which entitles you to a whole range of benefits including priority booking, discounts, voting rights and more! We aspire to cement ourselves as a vehicle for artistic and cultural development in this part of the country and being a Friend allows you to become part of that. Plus, it’s not too good to be true – Friends now pay no booking fees!

With new shows, new food on our menu and new faces around the building – pop in, pick up a brochure and say hello. We’ve got something here for everyone this summer and we’d love you to be part of it.
