The Barn Theatre in Cirencester has announced seven new productions for 2022, one of which will be the long-awaited stage adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's novel The Mozart Question.

Vicki Berwick’s stage adaptation of The Mozart Question will run from March 21 – April 30 and is the second play in the 2022 season. The play, originally planned to debut as part of the theatre’s 2020 season, will be the fourth production based on Michael Morpurgo’s work to be staged at the theatre and continues their ongoing relationship with the internationally best-selling author.

The Mozart Question follows acclaimed violinist Paolo Levi as he recounts, to a young reporter, his family’s connection to the Holocaust and the power of music in the hardest of times.

Michael Morpurgo said of his story and the new stage adaptation, “It is the most important story I have ever written, about the best and most beautiful and most heavenly that is in us, and the worst and most wicked and most hellish too. I have no doubt the Barn are creating a play worthy of the immensity of the tragedy, a play that reflects the power of music to heal, to bring reconciliation and peace in a troubled world.”

It will be produced by the Barn Theatre in association with the Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham and Anthology Theatre.

The 2022 season will begin with a new revival production of Kellen Blair and Joe Kinosian’s award-winning musical comedy Murder For Two from February 4 – March 5. The musical whodunit follows Officer Marcus Moscowicz as he is put to the test to prove his super sleuthing skills and solve the crime of novelist Arthur Whitney’s death before the real detectives arrive.

Paul Milton will direct a new production of the Rodgers & Hammerstein revue Some Enchanted Evening from May 6-28 before The Barn Theatre debuts a new production of the musical Million Dollar Quartet, which follows the events of the December 4, 1956, recording session at Memphis’ Sun Studio that brought four of the music’s best talents together for a once-in-a-life-time event: Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley. The new revival of the one-act musical, which features the songs of the legendary performers, will run in Cirencester from June 6 – July 16.

It is then onto Alfred Uhry’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Driving Miss Daisy from August 19 - September 17, to mark 35 years since the play’s debut before a new staging of Rachel Wagstaff and Duncan Abel’s adaptation of the gripping mystery, suspense thriller The Girl on the Train will run at the Barn Theatre from September 26 – October 29. Based on the bestselling novel by Pamela Hawkins and the blockbuster DreamWorks film.

The final production of the 2022 season sees Alan Pollock return for his fourth annual Christmas production with The True Fantastical History of Marian and Robin Hood! from November 21 - January 1. The new take on the classic tale follows archer, swordswoman, and trick rider Marian as she joins forces with her childhood nemesis Robin to thwart her hapless husband-to-be Sherriff of Nottingham and overthrow his evil protector Prince John.
