Lettice and Lovage

Until July 8, 2017

Accomplished director Sir Trevor Nunn rounds off his comedy play double bill at the Menier Chocolate Factory this spring with a brand-new revival of Peter Schaffer's 1987 satire, Lettice and Lovage, which originally starred Maggie Smith opposite Margaret Tyzack. This two-hander concentrates on the relationship that builds during a dismissal interview between two women. Felicity Kendal and Maureen Lipman take on the title roles.

The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4

July 14-September 9, 2017

Crack open a brand new page of your diary, everyone's favourite Leicestershire schoolboy is back with his unique observations of the world in this brand new musical adaptation of the world's most embarrassing teenage years. Based on the first installment of Sue Townsend's best-selling series following the chronically misunderstood intellectual, expect a nostalgic trip back to the early 80's where Adrian navigates the highs and lows of puberty wit his trademark wit and naivety.

The Menier Chocolate Factory is an off-West End theatre, which opened in 2004 after having being derelict for twenty years. The theatre won the Peter Brook/Empty Space Up and Coming Venue Award in 2005. Previously as a chocolate factory, the building was listed Grade II in 1996. The venue hosts plays and musicals, as well as stand-up comedy and live music events.
