NEW PERSPECTIVES END 2016 YEAR ON A RESOUNDING HIGH

Over the past year New Perspectives has toured new productions: THE TIGER'S BONES AND OTHER STORIES (Ted Hughes), DARKNESS, DARKNESS (John Harvey) in a co-production with Nottingham Playhouse and OH WHISTLE AND I'LL COME TO YOU (David Rudkin, adaptation of M.R. James Ghost story), employing 25 actors, 17 creatives and reaching over 5,000 people. The company's work has attracted audiences in 38 rural halls, 14 schools, 13 theatres and 5 churches from Carlisle to Exeter and extensively across the East Midlands - including the rural touring scheme Northants Touring Arts. In addition, New Perspectives held two high profile PLACEPRINTS readings featuring Toby Jones, Juliet Stevenson and Frances Tomelty to mark writer David Rudkin's 80thyear, a mentoring programme for Mansfield based integrated company Unanima and supported over 50 mid-career and emerging East Midlands artists through its Emerging Perspectives programme of masterclasses, performance and dramaturgical support.
