Eight tour dates announced for our next featured production, a new adaptation of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. Opening at Royal & Derngate Northampton on 4 September 2015, the show tours until 5 December 2015.

We're featuring a new adaptation of Aldous Huxley's ingenious fantasy of the future, Brave New World. Directed by James Dacre, Artistic Director of Royal & Derngate in Northampton, and adapted by award-winning playwright Dawn King. 

Opening at Royal & Derngate on Friday 4 September 2015, Brave New World plays there until Saturday 26 September 2015. It then tours to Edinburgh King's, Oxford Playhouse, Nottingham Theatre Royal, Cheltenham Everyman, Wolverhampton Grand, Darlington Civic, Blackpool Grand and Bradford Alhambra, where it concludes on Saturday 5 December.

We'll be covering the show along the way, beginning with rehearsals in August when we'll be getting a first look at what to expect from the show with pictures and video capturing the creative process. Whether you want to know more about James's directing decisions or are interested in how Dawn approached adapting Huxley's work, we've got it covered!

Once the tour begins, we'll be following the show across the UK with content from our young reporters, show features,  updates from the cast, as well as a look at the people behind the scenes and at the theatres we visit. 

We'll be generating learning resources for those who want to explore the production process further and next month will be launching new creative projects for you to get involved in. 

Get involved with the show online using #BraveNewWorld2015. We'd love to know what you're hoping to see in this show!

Brave New World premieres at Royal and Derngate, Northampton, where it runs from 4 to 26 September 2015. It then tours to Edinburgh, Blackpool, Nottingham, Cheltenham, Wolverhampton, Darlington and Bradford where it concludes on 5 December.
