Dopo la serie televisiva prodotta e trasmessa dalla BBC dieci anni fa, secondo l'adattamento di Dick Clement e Ian La Frenais, ci sarà presto anche una versione teatrale di uno dei capolavori di Jonathan Coe, The Rotters' Club: il debutto è atteso ad aprile 2016, con l'adattamento di Richard Cameron e la regia di Gwenda Hughes per il Birmingham Repertory Theatre.

Jonathan Coe's iconic 1970s coming-of-age novel, The Rotters' Club is brought to life on stage for the first time in an adaptation by Richard Cameron. Set in Birmingham, The Rotters' Club follows Benjamin Trotter through the hilarious and, at times, touching trials and tribulations of growing up in an era of IRA bombs, industrial strife and punk rock. Inspired by Jonathan's Coe's own school days in Birmingham and written from a young person's perspective, this production, commissioned by The REP and directed by Gwenda Hughes, will feature a large cast of young people drawn from across the city.
