Any new theatre company’s work is to be welcomed, especially when their debut production is as good as Tape — WHATSONSTAGE.COM


“Theatre is at its absolute best when it’s stripped back to the bare essentials, no fluff or extravagant sets, just expression and communication. This we learn through Northern Outlet Theatre Company’s double bill” – Now Then Magazine (Manchester) on Naked Old Man and John and Mark


Northern Outlet’s principal focus is to work with creatives in the North of the UK to stage forgotten gems and exciting new work for the theatre.

As a company with strong connections to the North-West, it is committed to being a platform for emerging Northern talent.


JOHN AND MARK / NAKED OLD MAN completed a tour of venues in Carlisle, Liverpool and Manchester in October and November 2014.

JOHN AND MARK A new play by George Gunby

Imagine a prison cell. Imagine a killer is visited by the man he gunned down. Imagine that man is John Lennon.

Set in the cell of a New York maximum security prison, the theatre premiere of ‘John and Mark’ sees prisoner Mark David Chapman visited by John Lennon, the man he shot dead years earlier.

With supporting act NAKED OLD MAN

The UK premiere of a one-act play by Tony and Academy Award nominated writer Murray Schisgal.

Frustrated by his ageing body, Murray cherishes each moment that lies ahead. He does so with great humour; for tonight the award-winning playwright and co-writer of Tootsie is joined by three of his closest friends. It just so happens that each of them is deceased.
