Visually dazzling and daringly provocative: The Tin Drum in rehearsals

Creating the evocative re-imagining of Günter Grass’ seminal novel, the company of The Tin Drum lead us through a radical yet delicate world for this theatrically electrifying new production.

Making a dazzling return to the Playhouse, Kneehigh, alongside West Yorkshire Playhouse and Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse, present Grass’s surreal and daring 20th Century masterpiece in Kneehigh’s celebrated storytelling style.

Directed by Kneehigh’s Artistic Director Mike Shepherd, The Tin Drum follows child Oskar as he refuses to grow up in an ugly world. Armed with a heart full of rage and a singing voice that shatters glass, Oskar sets about to reveal the world for what it truly is.

Visually spectacular, this West Yorkshire Playhouse, Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse and Kneehigh co-production plays in the Quarry Theatre from Tuesday 17 to Saturday 28 October.
