Rachel Reverse Spring 2016


The Sherman Theatre’s Autumn season is full of bold, thrilling work; classic plays and new plays, produced by us, sometimes in partnership with other companies. From the dark brilliance of award winning The Weir by Conor McPherson, to the much loved warmth of The Borrowers, the Sherman Theatre has something for all.

Our new work includes a reimagined version of The Emperor’s New Clothes by Alun Saunders, a delight for our younger audiences in both English and Welsh; a new play by Alan Harris, Love, Lies and Taxidermy and a new A Play, A Pie and A Pint play by Kelly Jones. We are thrilled to be working with these exciting Welsh playwrights. Our partners on this season include Tobacco Factory Theatres, Òran Mór, Paines Plough, and Theatr Iolo.

Alongside the Sherman-produced work, we are delighted to be able to bring you some of the best theatre from across the UK; from the Irish Times Theatre Award winning Scorch, by Belfast’s Prime Cut, to the contemporary and hyper-relevant Cargo, we want to share work with heart and soul on our stages. We are delighted to be working with these wonderful theatre makers to bring you, our audience, a season of compelling theatre. The Sherman is your theatre. We are here for you.
