Throughout the 50 year history of the Octagon, many productions of Shakespeare’s work have been performed on the Octagon stage. In keeping with this proud tradition, the Octagon is celebrating Shakespeare’s work to commemorate the 400th anniversary of his death.
The Octagon Theatre’s exciting 2016-17 season begins with Harper Lee’s poignant and powerful To Kill a Mockingbird. Marking Elizabeth Newman’s first full season as Artistic Director at the Octagon, To Kill a Mockingbird captures the delight and mysteries of childhood as well as exploring the fight for justice.
From 11am to 4pm, visitors to the Octagon Theatre’s first-ever Pleasure Beach weekend will be able to feel the sand between their toes, meet some donkeys, and indulge in some ice cream - whatever the weather.
