Twenty Theatres to See Before You Die, Paperback / softback Book

Twenty Theatres to See Before You Die Paperback / softback


From the tip of Cornwall to the Isle of Mull, through rural communities and the inner-city, Amber Massie-Blomfield takes the road less travelled to discover Britain's most astonishing and unexpected theatres.

A ruined playhouse, haunted halls, a stage hewn from granite cliffs.

Theatres on wheels, squeezed into a former public lavatory and rescued from fire.

A theatre that is not there at all. Making the case for radical, quirky and non-conforming performance spaces alongside iconic venues, this book is a celebration of thriving against the odds.

It also tells a personal account of a life-long love affair with the places where 'anything is possible': from open-air fry-ups and an impromptu can-can to paranormal manifestations. An adventure through theatre, place and the people who make it happen, Twenty Theatres to See Before You Die gives us reason to be hopeful.
