THE CARD Revival 

Our sell-out summer show THE CARD will be produced in May 2023 at the New Vic Theatre. 
Arnold Bennett’s much loved classic tale, adapted by Deborah McAndrew, will be re-directed by Conrad Nelson for the theatre-in-the-round. Gareth Cassidy will reprise his hilarious performance as the loveable chancer, Denry Machin. Other members of the original cast have also been confirmed. 
The company will once again be joined by the brilliant Acceler8 Brass Band, under the musical direction of Jef Sparkes. 
Dates: 20 May – 10 June 2022 
A smile on your face from the very first scene…
