Northumberland Theatre Company returning to New Deer

A popular theatre company is set to return to New Deer and delight crowds once again.

Northumberland Theatre Company are back in the north east with their latest production, Tartuffe, an hilarious and outrageous classic that, 350 years on from when Moliere wrote it, still has the ability to get the audience laughing.

Sue Robertson, Promoter said “Come and join us at New Deer Public Hall on Friday September 9 at 7.30pm for our first show of the new season.

“NTC have been five times to New Deer, most recently with “The Old Curiosity Shop” and “Whisky Galore” both of which played to capacity audiences.

“This promises to be just as good as their previous shows so get your tickets soon.”

This new performance version by Stewart Howson is performed in a style with one foot in Commedia dell’Arte and the other in “Carry On” yet with a relevance that will delight a modern day audience.

Tartuffe, a roguish imposter, worms his way into the orderly household of prosperous yet naive merchant Orgon.

He sets out to marry the daughter, seduce the wife, imprison Orgon and get his hands on the family fortune.

Cue disguises, thwarted lovers, eavesdropping and the famous ‘under the table scene’, one of the funniest comic set pieces ever written for the stage.

Tickets are £9 and £6 concession are available at Chemist and Food for Thought, New Deer, 01771 644217/644366 or online via www.neatshows.org.uk

This show is made possible by the support of North East Arts Touring Ltd, supported by Creative Scotland and Aberdeenshire Council.
