North Country Theatre on Tour with a new adaptation of The Gift of Stones

North Country Theatre The Gift of Stones

The hugely popular North County Theatre makes a welcome return to the Stephen Joseph Theatre with its latest stage adaptation on 27 October.


This year the company presents a new take on Jim Crace’s award-winning historical novel, The Gift of Stones, narrated by a one-armed story teller and his daughter, in a language as pared down and flinty as their tools and weapons.

The village of flint knappers is safe, self-satisfied, and inward looking, but a stray arrow, an amputation and a wild woman from the salt sea marshes bring murder, mystery and cataclysmic change.

Set in a community of flint tool makers some 4000 years ago, it explores the origins of storytelling and – a favourite North Country theme – truth, fiction and the willing suspension of disbelief.

The Gift of Stones is brought to the stage by the company whose brilliant adaptations have ranged from the hilarious 39 Steps to the scary The Rocking Horse Winner, the delightful Lighthouse on the Shivering Sands and The Lost World and, most recently, the deeply moving A Month in the Country.

North Country Theatre presents The Gift of Stones at the Stephen Joseph Theatre on Tuesday 27 October at 7.45pm. Tickets, priced from £10 to £15, are available online at www.sjt.uk.com or via the box office on 01723 370541. Limited tickets are remaining and advance booking is advised.
