MICHAEL GRANDAGE RETURNS TO THE CRUCIBLE WITH NEW PRODUCTION THE LEMON TABLE
Sheffield Theatres’ former Artistic Director Michael Grandage returns to the Crucible to direct the world première of Julian Barnes’ The Lemon Table, presented by Wiltshire Creative, Malvern Theatres, Sheffield Theatres and HOME in association with MGC and starring Ian McDiarmid.
In The Lemon Table, Julian Barnes brings his unsentimental, wryly comic, perspective to the complicated business of ageing, with its attendant, and often bizarrely, fluctuating emotions.
Olivier and Tony Award-winning Ian McDiarmid and MGC’s Artistic Director Michael Grandage have collaborated to bring The Lemon Table to the stage for the first time. In McDiarmid ’s own adaptation for performance, we encounter a spectrum of bitter-sweet pleasures, wild eccentricity and dark secrets.
The Lemon Table comes to the Crucible Theatre from Tuesday 26 – Saturday 30 October 2021.Tickets can be booked through the Box Office in person, over the phone on 0114 249 6000 or at sheffieldtheatres.co.uk.
Sheffield Theatres continues to follow the industry-wide safety protocols and government guidance for indoor entertainment. All the latest information is available at sheffieldtheatres.co.uk/your-visit.
