"New Perspectives has taken on an exciting challenge that proves rural touring companies can produce provocative work of national and international significance" - edfringereview.com

W
herever we present our work, we set ourselves the aim of offering all our audiences something they have never seen before. The work we make is unexpected and dynamic, drawing from sources and stories from around the world and showcasing a roster of exciting talent.

 
We have just returned from this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe with The Boss Of It All the UK's first stage adaptation based on the film by Danish provocateur Lars Von Trier. This Autumn we begin a nationwide tour of the stunning new play The Lovesong of Alfred J Hitchcock by legendary playwright David Rudkin. We are co-producing and opening this unprecedented new story of the great filmmaker with Leicester Curve Theatre in September with dates running through to November.  Plus tour booking has opened for our Spring production of Him With His Foot In His Mouth based on the novella by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Saul Bellow.

We look forward to seeing you on the road!

Welcome

New Perspectives is an East Midlands' based touring theatre company, specialising in bringing new work to rural and community audiences. Through an annual programme of original adaptations, rare revivals and new writing, we aim to bring live theatre that is diverse, affordable and accessible into the heart of wide-ranging communities, as well as to regional, national and international venues.  
Our productions are testament to the fact that rural theatre is as relevant, challenging and vital as theatre made for any other environment. Our participatory projects, career defining training and mentoring opportunities for emerging regional talent and rural touring scheme Northants Touring Arts makes tangible difference to people where they live.
