‘Me and My Girl,’ Hare slated for Sheffield

Top UK regional announces season

A new production of tuner “Me and My Girl” and a season of David Hare plays headline the new season at top U.K. regional theater Sheffield Crucible, to be announced today.

Anna Mackmin, whose production of “The Real Thing” is currently playing at London’s Old Vic, will helm the revival of Stephen Fry’s 1984 revision of the 1937 tuner which ran eight years in the West End and three on Broadway. Choreographed by Stephen Mear (“The Little Mermaid,” “Mary Poppins”) and designed by Peter McKintosh (“The 39 Steps”), it previews from Dec. 2 with a Dec. 9 opening.

The David Hare season will kick off in the Crucible studio theater with a revival of “Plenty” (Feb. 3-26), helmed by Thea Sharrock (“Equus”). Crucible a.d. Daniel Evans will direct “Racing Demon” in the main house (Feb.10-Mar. 5) and Peter Gill will stage a rare revival of “The Breath of Life,” Hare’s two-hander which originally starred Judi Dench and Maggie Smith, at Sheffield’s Lyceum Feb. 16-26.

Season also includes the regional preem of Polly Stenham’s play “That Face” and the world preem of “My Romantic History” by D.C. Jackson (Sept. 15-Oct. 2), directed by Lyndsey Turner in a co-production with London’s Bush Theater.
