The world premiere stage adaptation of Christy Lefteri’s novel The Beekeeper of Aleppo has been announced as Nottingham Playhouse’s first production for 2023.


Miranda Cromwell (Death of a Salesman) will direct the new production, which is penned by Nesrin Alrefaai and Matthew Spangler (who previously worked on Nottingham Playhouse's international sell-out The Kite Runner, soon to be seen on Broadway).


The show joins the venue's ongoing season, which includes new Parent Trap musical Identical, as well as a new production of The Clothes They Stood Up by Alan Bennett starring Sophie Thompson and Adrian Scarborough. The venue will host Ramps on the Moon's production of Much Ado About Nothing plus a fresh revival of Natasha Gordon's Nine Night.


The Beekeeper of Aleppo tells the story of a Syrian beekeeper and his artist wife who are forced to flee their home following the onset of war. Cast and further creatives are to be revealed.
