Our Shows

"New Perspectives has taken on an exciting challenge that proves rural touring companies can produce provocative work of national and international significance" - edfringereview.com

W
herever we present our work, we set ourselves the aim of offering all our audiences something they have never seen before. The work we make is unexpected and dynamic, drawing from sources and stories from around the world and showcasing a roster of exciting talent.

 
We have just returned from this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe with The Boss Of It All the UK's first stage adaptation based on the film by Danish provocateur Lars Von Trier. This Autumn we begin a nationwide tour of the stunning new play The Lovesong of Alfred J Hitchcock by legendary playwright David Rudkin. We are co-producing and opening this unprecedented new story of the great filmmaker with Leicester Curve Theatre in September with dates running through to November.  Plus tour booking has opened for our Spring production of Him With His Foot In His Mouth based on the novella by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Saul Bellow.

We look forward to seeing you on the road!

Welcome

We make ambitious and original theatre, focusing on new writing, adaptations and revivals, which we present in community settings and venues nationally and internationally. We provide career defining training and mentoring opportunities for emerging regional talent and manage the rural touring scheme Northants Touring Arts .
