Capstone theatre unveils spring season.

THEATRICAL adaptations of work by Bram Stoker and William Golding are on the programme for Liverpool's Capstone theatre.

Meanwhile Kolectiv Theatre, which this year presented Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard, returns to the Shaw Street venue with Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot.

The productions join classical, jazz and pop music and talks including an evening with historian Frank Carlyle.

Rock the Boat Productions presents Bram Stoker's Dracula in a fast-paced adaptation by John Godber, pictured, and Jane Thornton, being performed from February 9-11.

And John Godber returns from February 20-22 with Weekend Breaks, a comedy about "culture, clashes, wine, wit and Whitby".

In March, Sell a Door touring theatre company (established in 2007 by then LIPA students) brings Golding's Lord of the Flies to the venue in a new adaptation by Nigel Williams.

Later in the month, Theatre Unlimited takes to the Capstone stage with two productions - Stalin's Favourite, about the Soviet leader's favoured poet Konstantin Simonov, and Defying Hitler about a young man growing up in the shadow of the Third Reich.

Finally Kolectiv Theatre brings Waiting for Godot from May 10-12.

Theatre forms only part of the Capstone's spring programme, which also includes concerts by - amongst others - pianist Joanna MacGregor, who delivers the third in her Mozart piano concerto series on January 22, the Darius Brubeck Quartet, King Creosote and Jon Hopkins, The Bulbs and Phronesis.

Ten jazz concerts will run between February and May, forming The Liverpool International Jazz Series.

There will be a series of performances organised by Milapfest.
