The world premiere of Angels of the North, the new comedy by John Godber (Bouncers, Up 'n' Under), is set around the 2019 general election as the Labour Party's 'red wall' collapsed. I'll chair a Q&A with Godber and guests as part of a fundraising evening for the National Youth Arts Trust charity.
Thomas Holloway's #MR.SIMONSAID - an 'unsettlingly well-observed', yet darkly humorous, exploration into the greyer areas of sexual harassment - gets its London premiere at Tristan Bates Theatre. I'll chair a press night post-show Q&A.
After my 2019 event to Katharine Farmer's revival of 1980s Wall Street satire Other People's Money, I'm delighted to reunite with the director on another serving of American theatre, this time the UK premiere of an award-winning new play, Carey Crim's Never Not Once.
As part of the industry-invite, opening night performance of In Search of a White Identity, the first new play developed and produced in association with The Actors Centre, I'll chair a discussion about both the play and the theatre's future plans.
After their acclaimed West End debut with Education Education Education, The Wardrobe Ensemble return to London with their latest acclaimed devised show, following an Edinburgh Fringe sell-out and UK tour.
Tuesday 17 March 2020. One of the last theatre performances -for the foreseeable future - in the theatre capital of the world took place at London's Old Red Lion Theatre. A historic, sobering moment, one of many during the global coronavirus crisis.
The Old Red Lion Theatre launches a 'box-set theatre' offering: a unique three-play production that teams the first revival of multi-award-winning Simon Stephens' Nuclear War with two brand-new one-acters by emerging writers. Unmissable post-show Q&A with Stephens and other creatives.
The UK government's current coronavirus advice is that, with theatres, the show should still go on. I was certainly glad One Jewish Boy, British dramatist Stephen Laughton's brilliant play, written as a response to rising anti-semitism, did last night.
