Compass support The Lawrence Batley Theatre in their presentation of Forced Entertainment and other news from the region

Forced Entertainment in Huddersfield

Compass are very happy to have supported The Lawrence Batley Theatre in presenting Forced Entertainment's groundbreaking adaptation of the award winning novel by Ágota Kristóf

Set during World War II, The Notebook tells the story of a pair of twin brothers evacuated to their impoverished grandmother’s farm in order to shelter from the conflict.

Directed by Tim Etchells, The Notebook is an unraveling knot of naive logic, weaving dark and subversive humor from wartime hardships. Kristof’s narrational language – bold, crisp and reduced – provides the basis for a unique and compelling performance.

“Relentless and hypnotic”.
