Port Award winning playwright Simon Stephens is producing plays like theres no tomorrow. With 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time', 'Morning', 'A Doll's House' and 'Three Kingdoms' all taking to the stage last year, his Pearson Award-winning play 'Port' is now coming to the National Theatre. Having grown up in Stockport, Stephens took inspiration from his time in the city, as well as interviewing a number of women who lived there all their lives, and wrote Port. Talking to the BBC when the play first premiered in 2002, Stephens said: "I wanted to write about the hope I found there, the humour, the honesty, the charm as well as the brutality, the irony and the despair". Set between 1988 and 2002, Port starts with a pivotal moment when a young brother and sister are abandoned by their mother and left with a drunk of a father. Celebrating courage and the human spirit, it follows them over a 13-year period as they grow up in the deprived shadows of Manchester.

About National Theatre: Lyttelton Theatre

The Lyttelton is one of three theatres which make up the National Theatre. It was built in a proscenium style, but has thoroughly modern sightlines and acoustics. There really is no bad seat here as there are no circle rails or view-blocking pillars. More about National Theatre: Lyttelton Theatre
