Nuketown coming soon to Derby Theatre.

In association with Derby Theatre, Arc Stockton & Bike Shed Theatre present NUKETOWN

Derby Theatre Studio Friday 30 September – Saturday 1 October

An epic tale that animates an imaginary landscape…with enormous amounts of Lego!


As part of an exciting and innovative Studio season at Derby Theatre this autumn, Yorkshire-based theatre-maker Jack Dean will present Nuketown on Friday 30 September and Saturday 1 October.

Nuketown is a combined storytelling and protest art project about cities, public money and the possible end of life as we know it.

What would you do with 167 billion pounds? Working with town planners, architects, live feeds and enormous amounts of Lego, writer and performer Jack is building a brand new model city, equal in value to the proposed Trident nuclear submarine replacement programme.


Now Jack invites you to grab some bricks, help him finish off the city and hear an epic tale that animates this imaginary landscape. This is one man’s epic quest to find love, a lost cat and the most challenging thing of all – planning permission.

Jack Dean is a Yorkshire-based writer, performer and theatre maker who has carried his love of weird and wonderful arrangements of words to many places, from the Bowery Poetry Club in New York, Latitude Festival and the Radio 4 National Poetry Slam to a male beauty contest in Hackney (long story).

Nuketown is on for two nights only…so come and join Jack. It should be a blast. Suitable for age 14+.

Tickets: £10, concessions £8. For more information and to book tickets, call the Box Office on 01332 593939 or online at
