A dark and stylish new adaptation of the classic Newcastle-noir thriller.

Jack Carter is back home for the first time in years. He’s back to bury a brother who hated him, in a town he swore he was never going to see again. He’s back to find out who killed his brother, to pay debts and settle scores.

As the local underworld closes ranks, Jack’s bosses back in London find out that Jack has had his fingers in the till, and other places they shouldn’t have been. Jack plays a deadly game of cat and mouse as everyone tries to Get Carter, unless he gets you first.

Inspired by the classic noir of Raymond Chandler, by the freedom of Jazz and the coming of the 1960s, Ted Lewis’s novel is a classic of British crime fiction.

Set in a hard and uncompromising world of 1960s Newcastle rife with crime, sex, gambling and violence this adaptation tells the story made famous in Mike Hodge’s seminal film starring Michael Caine in the lead role.

Based on the novel JACK’S RETURN HOME by Ted Lewis. Adapted by Torben Betts.

Age recommendation: 16+ Contains very strong language.
