Carrie doesn’t fit in anywhere. At school, she is an outcast who is bullied, tormented or just invisible. At home, her dominating mother controls her life. But when Carrie discovers that she has unexpected power in other ways, everything will change…

Based on the Stephen King classic, this new production of the Royal Shakespeare Company musical marks a bold new actor-musician interpretation. Carrie is a gory, graphic and gripping tale of the horrible things that people do to each other.

Please be aware that Carrie will feature strong and gory violence, discrimination and bullying, abuse, scenes of a sexual nature, strobe lighting and sudden loud noise.

Duration: 2 hours and 20 minutes, including interval
