WHO ARE WE?

"A force to reckon with..." - ReviewerNumber9

Elysium TC is a new, independent, professional theatre company based in Durham. Our goal is to bring the best of world theatre to the North of England, with particular focus on the North East.

We launched in 2017. Since then it has been a whirlwind, with four critically-acclaimed productions coming one after another.

Our first, the Durham & Manchester premiere of J P Miller’s 'Days Of Wine And Roses' adapted by Owen McCafferty, played at the Assembly Rooms, Durham and 53two, Manchester, in October 2017. Its lead actor, co-founder Danny Solomon, was nominated for Best Fringe Performance in the Manchester Theatre Awards 2018.

Our second, the northern premiere of Stephen Adly Guirgis’ 'Jesus Hopped The A Train', played at the Assembly Rooms and HOME, Manchester, in May 2018.

Our third, the Durham premiere of 'Footfalls' and 'Krapp’s Last Tape' by Samuel Beckett, played at the Assembly Rooms on 23rd & 24th June as part of the Durham Festival Of Arts 2018

Our fourth, the regional premiere of 'The River' by Jez Butterworth, played at the City Theatre, Durham, and the Green Room at Queen's Hall Arts Centre, Hexham, at the end of November and early December 2018...

Our fifth, a version of Strindberg's 'Miss Julie' set in the North East saw us break out into small scale touring. Starting with our co-producers, Queen's Hall Arts Centre in Hexham, we toured to the Gala in Durham, the Exchange in North Shields and the Majestic in Darlington throughout March and April 2019. So successful was the production that we will be taking it to Hope Mill in Manchester this June. Don't miss it!

We have big plans for the rest of 2019 and onwards into 2020 and 2021... Come and take a look...

WE ARE THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE THAT 'MISS JULIE' WILL BE COMING TO HOPE MILL THEATRE, MANCHESTER, THIS JUNE AFTER A SENSATIONAL NORTH EAST TOUR!

“Don’t you know its dangerous to play with fire?”

Midsummer night in an old manor house in the North East. For one night only servants and masters are equal, and drink and dance together into the small hours. With the Lord away, his daughter, Miss Julie, strays into the servants quarters in search of his Valet, John. As the two play with fire, their mutual attraction drives them together with fatal consequences…
