Seminar dates: Tuesday 5th December or Thursday 7th December

Shackleton at Salisbury Arts Centre (relaxed performance)

Tall Tree Theatre combine compelling storytelling, live music and puppetry to tell this tall tale about stepping out of your comfort zone and saying yes to adventure!

Mr Middle has created a safe, predictable life of routine for himself and his loyal dog. Together they enjoy their evenings in and simple walks and Shackleton knows no different. Not one for surprises, Mr Middle keeps his world as small as possible but one day the garden gate is accidentally left ajar, which offers Shackleton the chance to look beyond what he has always known and forces his trepidatious owner into his own adventure in search of his beloved dog.

Award Winning Show at The Mayflower Theatre, Southampton

Following a phenomenally successful tour of the UK & Ireland in 2015, The National Theatre’s internationally acclaimed production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time embarks on a second tour in 2017.

This innovative drama is based on Mark Haddon’s award-winning novel, and has been adapted for the stage by award-winning Playwright Simon Stephens and directed by Olivier and Tony Award®-winning Director Marianne Elliot. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is the winner of seven 2013 Olivier Awards and five 2015 Tony awards, including ‘Best Play’. This smash-hit new production continues to play to sold-out houses in London’s West End and on Broadway and will thrill new audiences on this much anticipated second tour of the UK & Ireland.

Christopher, fifteen years old, has an extraordinary brain – exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. When he falls under the suspicion of killing Mrs Shears’ dog, it takes him on a journey that upturns his world.

Performances between Monday 27 March and Saturday 1 April 2017. Tickets range from £20.50 to £37.50. Book here
