An autumn of theatrical treats
Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones launches an autumn season packed with theatrical treats at Birmingham Repertory Theatre. Adapted by Bryony Lavery, this imaginative staging of the best-selling novel returns to the theatre on September 6-21. The Lovely Bones tells the story of Susie, a young girl lured to her death, who then watches over her family as they try to cope with their loss.

The show is followed by the National Theatre hit Barber Shop Chronicles, now touring the UK. Under the careful cutting of scissors and razors, the barber shop fills with every walk of life. Inua Ellams' heart-warming and funny play takes us into the lives of the various men who visit the barber and share their life experiences while having their hair cut.

Robert Lindsay comes to The Rep stage in the role of cinematographer Jack Cardiff in Terry Johnson's Prism. A huge hit at the Hampstead Theatre, the show brings us a retired Cardiff determined to write his autobiography but with a life full of movie stars where does he begin?

Pride and Prejudice (Sort Of) gives audiences a different view of the Jane Austen classic. The limelight moves from the Bennets to the servants who ensure the house runs smoothly and who know a good deal more about what is happening than they let on!

In November, The Rep hosts the return of the National Theatre's stunning An Inspector Calls. Directed by Stephen Daldry, this multi-award winning stage adaptation of J B Priestley's thriller became a theatre legend when it played the National and then toured the UK. The Birling family dinner is rudely interrupted by the arrival of Inspector Goole, who is investigating the death of a young woman. Where initially the family believe there is no connection, the plot gradually reveals some truths which shock them to the core.

And Christmas will be celebrated with a new adaptation of J M Barrie's Peter Pan. Running from November 30 to January 19 in the main house, the family show will be full of high flying lost boys, pirates and fairies.
