The first show of NTC’s 2021 Indie Season is Two.

Set in a typical northern England pub in the late 1980s, Two explores the realities of life for working class people through a series of vignettes which are hilarious and often moving. They range from caustic

exchanges between the landlord and landlady to interactions between various locals who frequent their establishment, some of whom look for love, others solace, others for something more than the ordinary.

These characters – all played by two actors – you will recognise and relate to. So, buy a drink and take a seat. Promises will be made, hearts broken, stories shared, and long-hidden secrets revealed. Tonight’s a night just like any other…or is it?

Plays 3, 5 and 6 March 2021.

The Road to Tibooburra

This is a rock concert with a story to tell, an Outback tinged twang! trimmed with a lot of great jokes and stark juxtaposition – somewhere between Priscilla and Wake in Fright.

Experience a rollicking rock’n’roll bus ride, a ‘getting the band back together’ feeling, a surreal trip into the Australian interior.

A sprawling work of performance art, complete with odd angry rants and broken down hillbillies, The Road To Tibooburra is a vigorously painted canvas, a drama playing out in the Australian desert at the time of COVID-19.

Thursday 11th March: 8pm-9.30pm

Friday 12th March: 8pm-9.30pm

Saturday 13th March: 8pm-9.30pm 

Sunday 14th March: 2pm-3.30pm


Glorious is a hilarious and moving comedy based on the true story of the wealthy socialite dubbed the worst singer in the world. In 1940’s New York, Florence Foster Jenkins was the performer everyone wanted to see. An enthusiastic soprano whose pitch was far from perfect, Florence was “the first lady of the sliding scale”, warbling and screeching her way through performances to an audience who mostly fell about laughing. But this delusional and joyously happy woman paid little attention to her critics, supported by a circle of devoted friends almost as eccentric as her. This heartfelt play spins from Florence’s charity recitals and extravagant balls, through to her bizarre recording sessions, as we witness a true star follow her dreams all the way to her greatest triumph.

Season 10 April to 1 May 2021
