A documentary and fictional short film about the history of Northern Stage looking at the first 50 years of the theatre.

Originally started as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations in 2020, by Northern Stage films, Young Company, Newcastle University and My Life Productions CIC.

These films look at the heritage of the theatre from its inception as the University Theatre in 1970 right through to the present day and its place at the cultural and social heart of our region.

This project was funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
