Exciting news theatre fans!
We’re still putting the finishing touches to our exact plans for this season but here’s what we’ve got so far:
Play On Words makes its London transfer (after a critically-acclaimed sell-out run at the Pleasance Dome) from January 4th-23rd. Bigger and better than ever before and (hopefully) ready to take London by storm.
Alongside this flagship production we’ll be hosting the Reactivity Season. This is a festival of new work celebrating and exploring audience intereaction in theatre. Featuring:
An Interactivity Symposium on the three Saturdays (9th, 16th, 23rd). Talks and debates with an invited panel and performances from guest theatre companies. Bringing together everyone currently working in – or interested in – interactivity in theatre. A chance to take stock, share ideas, learn from others experiences and plan the future for this exciting, new and emerging genre.
Adventure Time: after trials around the country, we bring our anarchic, interactive, spoof radio series back to the Tristan Bates where we’ll be staging the full series of pun-dimensional episodes. Can the audience save the on-air broadcast that will make Comedy Trio’s name? Come along and find out / decide.
Play readings of two new works (and one in need of refreshment) by Tom Crawshaw. Still Life which explores the place of religion in modern urban life and Reverie which follows a young man on a journey to harness the power of dreams. Joined by Later Showers, which makes its London premiere after wowing critics in Buxton and Edinburgh in 2005 (starring Michael Grady-Hall and directed by Yaz Al-Shaater). All readings welcome feedback to help the development of the works afterwards.
So it’s all happening at the Tristan Bates theatre, 4th-23rd January. There’ll be plenty more information to follow but feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to know any more. We hope to see everyone there at some point, whether you like watching, interacting or joining discussions.
