Favourites

November Club’s performing arts productions to date have involved communities from far and wide, in unexpected places and surprising happenings. We have heard and told stories of bookworms and bakers, dreams of skateparks and elephants, performing ropes and wobbling jellies, more prosperous towns and troubled villages, of closing down factories and salmon fishing, evacuees and theatrical aristocrats…

Our archive of previous performing arts productions has information on where we’ve made work before, who we’ve collaborated with, and where our adventures and extraordinary journeys have taken place.
