Our city-wide performance programme

Welcome to Sunderland Stages new Autumn/Winter season – our programme of theatre, dance and spoken word performances in venues and unusual spaces around the city.

Our venues this season include The Peacock pub; the all new Pop Recs on High Street West; The Royalty Theatre and St Gabriel’s Church Hall.

They host plays about Brian Clough and the demise of the mining industry; dance commemorating the end of WW1 and the equally devastating Spanish Flu which followed it; politics; pop music and even a Christmas quiz show – this season has something for everybody.

VENUE : THE PEACOCK, 287 High Street West, Sunderland, SR1 3ES
Part gig. Part theatre. Fans is a mix of new writing, raucous live music and real-life stories inspired by real music fans. Full of emotion, humour and musical pulse, Fans is a show for anyone who’s ever been first in the queue or pushed their way to the front of the barrier. It’s for anyone who’s bought tickets first and worried about how they’ll pay for them later. It’s for anyone who’s followed a band around the globe or got their favourite lyric tattooed on their body.
