Moon in the Sky Theatre and The Kitchen, at Alnwick Road Newton Hall, have teamed up to bring your this unique dining and theatre experience. For one night only we will be performing ‘The Case in Question’ a new play by Tom Casling based on a well known 1940’s classic .

The Kitchen at Alnwick Road has only been in operation for a short time and yet it has already developed an excellent reputation in the locality for its good food, an intimate dining atmosphere, its bistro evenings, its outside catering and its conviviality. The Business is always exploring new and innovative ways to reach new people and to include them in this experience

Tom Casling is a playwright who has 13 published plays under his belt and several new plays under development. His recent play Tipp the Taxi Driver was staged at the Custom House South Shields in March this year. He has also had his play Alter Ego performed at Bishop Auckland Town Hall in May and at Neston in Wiltshire in June this year

Moon in the Sky Theatre is a Durham based touring Theatre Company. One of the aims of the group is to perform in unusual and different venues. We also aim to bring theatre to people in their own community settings

A Dining and Theatre Experience: This is the first of several Dining and Theatre experiences being developed by The Kitchen and Moon in the Sky Theatre over the next year. Others will include Murder Mystery plays and Children’s Theatre.

The Case in Question is a modern play based on a well known 1940s classic. The Kitchen will be transformed into a 1940s setting, it will provide a period meal, dessert and refreshments. The action will take place between the courses and the diners will find themselves immersed within the action. Although the café is not licensed to sell alcohol diners can bring their own wine if they wish
