The Minack Theatre, Porthcurno, Cornwall is Rowena Cade’s famous cliff-side theatre close to Lands End in Britain. From an actor's point of view, stepping out onto the stage of The Minack is certainly one of the most exciting experiences possible. But being a spectator is just as amazing. Audiences return again and again to be captivated by a stage framed with cliffs and sea - a stunning backcloth to the dramas unfolding before them.

Next Stage made its first appearance at the Minack Theatre in June 1998 with a production of Alan Ayckbourn's Sisterly Feelings. Subsequent productions have been Peter Shaffer's The Royal Hunt of the Sun (Aug 2001), Christopher Hampton's Les Liaisons Dangereuses (July 2003), Sir Alan Ayckbourn's The Champion of Paribanou (Aug 2005), Nicholas Wright's adaptation of Phillip Pullman's epic His Dark Materials Parts 1 & 2 (Aug 2007), Amadeus by Peter Shaffer (Aug 2009), Jay Presson Allen's adaptation of Muriel Spark's The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (Aug 2011), Timberlake Wertenbaker's Our Country's Good (Aug 2013), Glyn Robbins’ adaptation of C.S. Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (Aug 2015) and Rachel Wagstaff’s adaptation of Sebastian Faulk’s Birdsong (July 2017).
