1st Night Photos: Stafford-Clark & Imrie Get Mixed

By • West End
Max Stafford-Clark's Out of Joint company made a welcome return to the capital last night (12 November 2009), bringing their Celia Imrie-led production of Mixed Up North to the historic Wilton's Music Hall.

Written by Robin Soans and based on real events in Burnley, Mixed Up North follows Trish, who has set up a theatre group for Asian and white teenagers. She brings in a director - the harassed and heavily pregnant Bella - who struggles to share her artistic vision with this disaffected group of young people. As they reach the final dress rehearsal, tensions rise and bonds fracture. But then the theatre group begin to use their own compelling stories.

Built by pub owner John Wilton in 1859, Wilton's is currently celebrating its 150th anniversary and is the world's oldest surviving extant music hall. It was closed in the 1880s and later became a Methodist church and then a rag warehouse. Once condemned, it was saved by the intervention of Sir Laurence Olivier, Peter Sellers and Sir John Betjeman.

Mixed Up North continues until 5 December.
