This is the first fully curated season of work we have announced since opening the venue, so it feels like a long time coming in terms of a clear and united narrative about the type of work and artist The Bunker is excited to support.
The Bunker’s Spring 2018 season sees the venue truly celebrate its place as a playground for ambitious artists and adventurous audiences, just over a year after it first opened its doors. The bold season, including works by Terry Johnson and Izzy Tennyson, highlights the venue’s commitment to work with exciting playwrights, both established and emerging.
The Faction celebrate the work of 18th-century German powerhouse Friedrich Schiller with a two-week SchillerFest, at the Bunker Theatre from 31 October to 11 November 2017, showcasing his greatest plays and a line-up including Dame Eileen Atkins, Ciaran Hinds, Celia Imrie and Guardian critic Michael Billington.
Kieran Knowles’ new play 31 HOURS, about the men whose job it is to deal with the aftermath of suicides on the country’s railways, is readying for its world premiere this week at London’s Bunker Theatre, where it runs from 3 to 28 October 2017. How much do you know about the truth behind the statistics? Have you booked yet?
