Get Carter at The Lowry
19 April 2016 - 23 April 2016
Jack Carter is back home for the first time in years. He’s back to bury a brother who hated him, in a town he swore he was never going to see again. He wants to pay debts, settle scores and discover who killed his brother.
As the local underworld closes ranks, Jack’s bosses back in London find out that Jack has had his fingers in the till, and other places they shouldn’t have been. Jack plays a deadly game of cat and mouse as everyone tries to Get Carter. Unless he gets them first.
Ted Lewis’s novel is a classic of British crime fiction. Set in a hard and uncompromising 1960’s Newcastle rife with crime, sex, gambling and violence this adaptation tells the story made famous by the 1971 film starring Michael Caine.
A new production from Northern Stage, last seen at The Lowry with the acclaimed Close the Coalhouse Door.
