Matthew Bourne’s The Midnight Bell


Prepare for tales of intoxication from darkest Soho! Matthew Bourne’s latest world premiere for New Adventures covers the dark under-belly of London life in the 1930s. So, you have regular people emerging from basic boarding houses ever night. And they let out their passions, their hopes and their dreams across pubs and bars within Soho and Fitzrovia. And then there’s The Midnight Bell, a tavern allowing one lonely-hearts club to play out their lovelorn affairs. And these include bitter comedies about longing, frustration, betrayal but also redemption. This is simply a Dance Theatre event that you cannot miss.


Matthew Bourne joins forces once more with Terry Davies, Lez Brotherston, Paule Constable and Paul Groothuis. And the inspiration for this show is the work of English novelist Patrick Hamilton. Furthermore, Hamilton would have a speciality for telling stories about the working class stemming from the London Pub.


A talented cast of twelve New Adventures performers is awaiting further announcements. But when the full list of performers is available, we will let you know!


Liverpool’s Playhouse Theatre is one of the most popular entertainment venues in the whole city. Now, its circular entranceway is instantly recognisable and perfectly central within Williamson Square. But it’s more notable for its diverse offering of shows covering stand-up comedy, serious drama and children’s fun. Not to mention that it’s a great location to allow theatre-goers to enjoy the shops, bars and restaurants in the surrounding city centre. So, if you wish to see a theatre show in Liverpool, we strongly recommend that you pop by to the Playhouse Theatre.
