SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING
01 March 12 - 07 April 12
Stage adaptation by Matthew Dunster
'Don't let the bastards grind you down'
Alan Sillitoe's iconic novel is transformed into a spectacular new stage version by Matthew Dunster, whose previous successes at the Exchange include his own adaptation of George Orwell's 1984 and the award-winning MOGADISHU.
Rebellious young factory worker Arthur Seaton has reasons to drink, reasons to fight and several girls on the go. But when the fun and risk of Saturday night turns to the hangover and bruises of Sunday morning, Arthur starts to understand the real
meaning of love.
By turns heart-warming, ferocious and comic, SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING won huge acclaim for its brutally honest portrayal of life in Nottingham in the 50s.
