New Vic Theatre to stage world-first in-the-round production of ‘Brassed Off’

From Saturday 1 to Saturday 22 June 2019, the New Vic Theatre will stage the world-first in-the-round production of the classic comedy-drama, Brassed Off, the powerful story about community spirit in a Yorkshire mining town.

Conrad Nelson returns to the New Vic to direct this new production of Paul Allen’s adaptation of Mark Herman’s lauded screenplay, which will feature rousing music performed live on stage by Crewe’s TCTC Group Champion Brass Band.

The production will feature a talented cast of nine actor-musicians including Martin Barrass (Danny), Howard Chadwick (Harry), Andy Cresswell (Jim), Clara Darcy (Gloria), Susie Emmett (Sandra), William Fox (Phil), Natasha Lewis (Vera), Nicolas Shaw (Andy), and Helen Sheals (Rita).

The company are joined by members of the New Vic’s Community Theatre Company, drawn from the local Staffordshire area.

A heart-warming story of triumph in the face of adversity, Brassed Off follows the troubles of a 1994 Yorkshire mining community whose pit is on the brink of closure.

With only the colliery brass band keeping spirits up, sights are set firmly on reaching the national brass band championships at the Royal Albert Hall.

With conversations turning to talk of picket lines and redundancy packages, the miners are falling out of tune when Flugelhorn-playing Gloria brings hope to the band and the town.
