Preview: The Leftovers at Newcastle Northern Stage


The Leftovers
Newcastle Northern Stage
Monday 14 May 2018

Born of the BAFTA award-winning Television Workshop, Nottingham-based theatre company Sheep Soup are taking their latest production, The Leftovers, on a UK tour.

Specialising in creating musicals in which music happens naturally, and following the success of their first original production, Mrs Green: The Musical (***** Metro, ***** Edinburgh Fringe Review), Sheep Soup are proud to be taking their latest musical on their first UK tour, following the success of their sold-out run at Leicester Curve Theatre.

Commissioned by Leicester Curve Theatre, and supported by Arts Council England, The Leftovers is set in a community recording studio. Jodie’s grieving friends are making a big song and dance about her death. They form a makeshift band to celebrate her life in musical form, but can’t agree on what kind of tribute Jodie would have wanted… or even who she really was. They dive into her surviving collection of diary entries, poems and secrets to make some sense of things, and to have some fun amongst the darkness of loss. 

Join the inimitable Sheep Soup and enter the hilarious and heartwarming world of The Leftovers, where genre boundaries are smashed, friendships are built and destroyed, and everyone tries to avoid writing Candle In The Wind…
