That pretty much describes us!

New Theatre Productions want to put interesting and entertaining things on stages and in spaces whenever we possibly can. We love theatre in all its forms, and we love to start conversations. We think that live theatre provides one of the best mediums for doing that. We plan to share stories using one of the oldest and purest forms of entertainment and we aim to build a community among all who are as passionate about theatre as we are.

Next Show

 The Spruce Goose.  An original play by Ncube.

 The Hughes H-4 Hercules (also known as “The Spruce Goose”) was an aircraft  designed  in 1947.  It was a painstaking project which sucked up time, money and only flew once.

As a work of historical fiction, The Spruce Goose play draws parallels between the plight of engineer Howard Hughes and that of an ambitious and politically minded Hollywood film director who has worked painstakingly on his latest epic, only to have it pulled apart by his studio executives…

Please click here to book tickets for our final performance: Sunday 2nd August at Ye Olde Rose & Crown Theatre Pub at 3pm.

The Spruce Goose is written and directed by Ncube, and is produced in association with What Else Is There

Guerrilla Reviews

We enjoy reading play reviews from renowned theatre critics, but we also really value the opinions of every day people that aren’t giving reviews for a living. In this section we target paying theatre-goers fresh from their viewing experiences to get the low-down on what they’ve just seen, and whether or not they’d recommend it to others.


The show in a word: Enthralling!

Most memorable / favourite part: When the creator of the game angrily and drunkenly paid out the clients.

Could / should have had: The end was challenging to grasp, I was quite puzzled when the play was over.

Pay to go again?: Erm, yes I would!

– Timothy, Colorado

The show in a word: Weird…

Most memorable / favourite part: The live show, we were in the centre with things happening all around us.

Could / should have had: I am foreign so there were lots of things that I just didn’t understand.

Pay to go again?: No.

– Sebastien, Paris


The show in a word: Interesting…

Most memorable / favourite part: The kid, although you can’t really isolate one part because the play’s format is a whole experience.

Could / should have had: I’m in the industry so I wouldn’t want to say!

Pay to go again?: I love Mike Bartlett, but no.  £30 was a bit too expensive for what I saw.

– Anon, London

The show in a word: Relevant.

Most memorable / favourite part: When the kid was first in the box, you could SO relate to him,  I loved the human aspect of the play! Also, the shooting!

Could / should have had: I didn’t like seeing other people watching the play.

Pay to go again?: I’d pay to be in the show!

– Stuart, London
