Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. He’s about to become a very big deal. From Academy Award-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and Richard Curtis, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and Notting Hill, comes a rock-n-roll comedy about music, dreams, friendship, and the long and winding road that leads to the love of your life.
Jack Malik (Himesh Patel, BBC’s Eastenders) is a struggling singer-songwriter in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie (Lily James, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again). Then, after a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed … and he finds himself with a very complicated problem, indeed.
Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, and with a little help from his steel-hearted American agent, Debra (Emmy winner Kate McKinnon), Jack’s fame explodes. But as his star rises, he risks losing Ellie — the one person who always believed in him. With the door between his old life and his new closing, Jack will need to get back to where he once belonged and prove that all you need is love.
Featuring new versions of The Beatles’ most beloved hits, Yesterday is produced by Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner (Love Actually, About A Boy, the Bridget Jones series) alongside Matthew James Wilkinson and Bernie Bellew. Curtis and Boyle also produce. Nick Angel and Lee Brazier serve as executive producers.

When young William Beech is evacuated from London to escape the blitz of World War II, his life changes forever. Leaving behind an abusive mother, he enters an unfamiliar world in the country. Will's new host, widower Tom Oakley, has spent the last forty years alone, ever since his wife and son died shortly after childbirth. Fate brought Will and Tom together, love kept them together and nothing could ever pull them apart.
Set during the dark and dangerous build-up to the Second World War, Goodnight Mr Tom follows sad young William Beech, who is evacuated to the idyllic English countryside and builds a remarkable and moving friendship with the elderly recluse Tom Oakley. All seems perfect until William is devastatingly summoned by his mother back to London.
Goodnight Mr Tom is a tale of two broken souls at very different ends of the age-scale that celebrates the value of love and proves that friendship knows no barriers.
Tickets £10 (£8 cooncessions). From Congleton TIC and online.
Daneside Theatre is an independent theatre with a charitable status that aims to provide a venue for the community that all ages can benefit from.
The 300-seat theatre is located just on the edge of the town centre just off the Mountbatten Way, the dual carriageway that runs through the town. It is the home of various amateur groups as well as being available to hire for shows and business events. The original theatre built in the 1980s was extended in 2000 to add rehearsal rooms, scenery store and provides better access and facilities for all theatre users.
These facilities enable shows of all types to be staged, from plays to musicals, films to dance shows, pantomimes to concerts. So we aim to have something to suit all tastes during our season.
For further details of our shows this current season see the What’s On section.
Over the next two years we will be embarking on an exciting project to improve the foyer area of the theatre, and small improvements to the auditorium and back stage areas.
