Please see the following message friom Live Theatre:

We are very sorry to announce that we have taken the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming production of To Be A Young Man.

Both Nadine Shah and Live Theatre have agreed that more time is needed to realise such an ambitious and personal project in the way that it deserves. We were greatly looking forward to this unique collaboration and we hope to be able to announce its return in the future.

Our priority now is to support everyone working on the production including our fantastic cast and creative team, and we will be in touch with ticket holders to issue a refund.

For any queries, please email [javascript protected email address].



Groundbreaking artist Nadine Shah turns her talents to the stage for this unique production created with Live Theatre Newcastle.  

Marking ten years since her extraordinary debut album Love Your Dum and Mad announced a voice quite unlike any other, Shah now collaborates with her close friend writer Jackie Thompson and director Jack McNamara to create a stage production that gives dramatic life to the themes and ideas that marked that album, seen now from the perspective of a globally renowned artist looking back. 

In a story of chaos and recovery, unlikely friendships and unending creativity, To Be A Young Man is a dramatic narrative full of gallows humour and haunted by the sounds from Shah's unique musical universe. 

The production will end with a short but very special paired down musical set from Shah herself.
