‘Get Carter’ Reviews Coming In…

posted in: News 0

I was lucky enough to visit the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry last week to watch the latest take on Jack’s Return Home adapted for the stage by Northern Stage. It was an interesting experience and one that on the whole I enjoyed. The play is based much more on the original novel, despite retaining the ‘Get Carter’ name. Without giving too much away, there are a number of plot twists that have been added in by the writer, presumably to give it the extra edge and twists to make it an interesting, original take on the story.

The production has been having strong reviews across the web, some praising its new take on the story and the strong cast performance – alongside a fantastic set. For me, the play is possibly slightly long and it loses it’s way slightly in the second half, before the climax. That said, it’s a great production for any of the big fans of Get Carter and well worth an evening out.
