The Shadow Factory
+ More Info +

One of Britain’s greatest living playwrights, Hampshire-born Howard Brenton (Anne Boleyn, Shakespeare’s Globe; Pravda, National Theatre) tells the remarkable and little known story of how Southampton stepped up when the chips were down.

Critically acclaimed, this sell out smash hit features a stellar cast supported by a 25-strong community company made up of Southampton residents. The Shadow Factory returns to celebrate the first birthday of Southampton’s brand new theatre NST City.

Tickets: From £10

Nuffield Southampton Theatres (NST) is one of the UK’s leading professional theatre companies, commissioning, developing and producing fresh, vital experiences through theatre. NST has developed a profile and reputation for innovation and quality delivering work on a national and international scale, taking work to London and Dubai, whilst acting as a major cultural force for good in the city of Southampton.

As well as its own produced work, NST’s programme includes the best touring theatre from local, national and international artists, children’s theatre, comedy, dance, circus, film and music.

In February 2018, NST will open a second venue in Southampton’s city centre, NST City, with the world premiere of Howard Brenton’s The Shadow Factory. NST City will include a flexible 450 seat main house theatre, a 133 seat studio, screening facilities, rehearsal and workshop spaces. NST will run the new city centre venue alongside its existing theatre, NST Campus, on the University of Southampton’s Highfield Campus. NST will remain equally committed to both venues.

NST is an Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation and a registered charity, receiving additional core funding from the University of Southampton and Southampton City Council. In 2015, NST was awarded Regional Theatre of the Year at The Stage Awards. In 2017, NST won The Renee Stepham Award for Best Presentation of Touring Theatre for its brand new adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox, in co-production with Curve Leicester and in association with Lyric Hammersmith, at the UK Theatre Awards.
