The Allesley Silas

Belgrade Theatre

23 July 2022 to 23 July 2022 (19:45 - 21:00)


Silas Marner is one of the great stories by one of Coventry’s most celebrated writers, George Eliot. This new version of the story, with joyous music by Rebecca Applin, was a sell-out success during Coventry UK City of Culture 2021, where it was performed in a circus marquee in Allesley Park. Set in the village of Raveloe – a fictional version of Allesley itself – and featuring the local Rainbow pub, this is a classic tale of hope, redemption and the unshakeable power of the human spirit. Devised by a nationally celebrated production team of theatre professionals with connections to the area, this is a magical tale of love lost and found, and is presented by a talented company of professional and local community performers. A story of an outsider, who in his caring for a child finds redemption, and love in his community. Nick Walker’s magical production is re-imagined for the Belgrade’s B2 by Coventry director Olivia Marie, in a new setting by Allesley designer Abby Clarke.

In our landmark building, across the region, the UK and online, we will use theatre to entertain, inspire, share the city’s stories, uncover hidden histories and unleash the creativity in our communities. The Belgrade is the largest professional theatre in Coventry and so we act as both the city and region’s commercial and producing theatre. We are also highly respected for our ground-breaking community and education initiatives. In January 2022 the Belgrade welcomed two new leaders – Laura Elliot as Chief Executive and Corey Campbell as Creative Director.
