Milton Keynes Theatre have teamed up with Olivier award-winning producer, Kenny Wax, to celebrate Milton Keynes’ 50th birthday, with an unmissable chance to see the stunning new stage adaptation, La Strada, prior to its West End run.

Inspired by Federico Fellini’s Oscar winning masterpiece, this soul-searching story filled with beauty, deep emotion, humour and acute observation, tells the tragic and tender tale of wide-eyed Gelsomina, who is sold by her impoverished mother to the brutish strongman Zampano, a travelling sideshow performer. Their journey through the Italian countryside leads them to a ragtag touring circus where they meet Il Matto, the free-spirited tightrope walker, who brings new hope to Gelsomina as he rekindles her broken spirit.

Directed by Olivier Award-nominee, Sally Cookson and with music composed by Benji Bower, this exciting new production features live music on stage that is integral to the work and drives the narrative.

Under the offer, the first 50 pairs of tickets sold for the show are available free, with a further 50 tickets available for just 50p at every performance, as part of the theatre’s celebration of MK50. In order to claim this offer, customers are advised to book before midnight on Sunday 19 February, using the promotional code MK50FREE, or MK50P.

General manager Emma Sullivan said: ‘Milton Keynes Theatre is proud to be a part of this vibrant city and we’re excited to be able to host this much anticipated new play. It is our hope that this opportunity will inspire wider audiences to come and experience new work at the start of its journey and enable us to host productions at a similar point in their development in the future.’

La Strada begins a six-day run at the venue on Monday (February 20)
