Thunder Road are a theatre company established from an aspiration to produce new independent work. We focus on developing classic novels and returning them to the stage with a contemporary edge, whilst maintaining a faithfulness to the original.

Having produced and created several sell out shows in partnership with Harrogate Theatre, supported using public funding by Arts Council England. We have once again been commissioned to create our latest classic revamp: Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.

You can contact us (below), find out more about our creative team here, view our current/previous projects (left) and take a look at our 2019 touring production of The Invisible Man which recently achieved a sell out run at Harrogate Theatre.

The world quakes in fear...

A sea-monster is sinking warships in the mid-Atlantic. Their vessel capsized, Professor Aronnax (the most famous oceanographer in Europe) and Ned Land (King of Harpooners) find themselves adrift and lost on a storm-swept ocean. Rescued by the mysterious Captain Nemo and held captive aboard his fantastic ship the Nautilus, their perilous voyage begins...

Jules Verne’s prophetic novel of sub-sea adventure foreshadows our own atomic-age as the unrivalled technology of the Nautilus is put to ever-more destructive use by the dark genius of Captain Nemo. His quest? ‘To rid the world of all mankind.’ Caught in a race against time, Aronnax and Land must destroy the Nautilus before Nemo’s appalling vision comes true...

Following a sell-out production of The Invisible Man in 2017 Thunder Road once again brings daring and delight to another timeless cult classic, a cautionary tale of science, exploration, madness, and courage. This voyage is not to be missed ...

Winter 1897. A stranger comes to the quiet English village of Iping, emerging from a snow-storm like some ghostly apparition. Nameless and faceless, this 'devil without eyes' shuts himself away from curious locals to carry out his mysterious experiments. Before long, the villager's curiosity has given way to a deadly, unseen terror...

Wells prophetic tale of a scientist destroyed by his astonishing discovery has captivated imaginations for a 120 years. Thunder Road and Harrogate Theatre invite you to take a 'first look' at The Invisible Man in this gripping new production, exploring Wells' themes of identity, self-esteem, betrayal and madness..
