The pair of productions were commissioned by the company and tackle issues that lie at the heart of young people’s lives: mental health, sex and trauma. They run at Southwark Playhouse until 29 June 2019.
Written by Molly Taylor, What Was Left follows a year in the life of three siblings who are learning to survive in unknown territory, and struggling with trauma and mental health as the world around them is falling apart. It is directed by Matt Hassall.
Loosely based on the short story by E. T. A. Hoffmann, The Sandman, written by Harry Blake, features fierce fashion, jump scares, the supernatural and a bold contemporary score in the story of a nightmarish character from childhood who steals people’s eyes and stalks a talented young artist who is about to start university.
This is the second year that the company, supported by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, will have performed at Southwark Playhouse, following 2018’s Infinite Joy and Sticky. The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation Bridge Company is a unique training initiative made up of recent graduates from the south London school that provides vocational training in the performing arts, media, art, design and technology.
What Was Left and The Sandman run at Southwark Playhouse, 77-85 Newington Causeway, London SE1 6BD from 14 to 29 June 2019 with performances Mondays to Saturdays 8pm, matinees Tuesdays and Saturdays 3.30pm. Tickets are priced £22. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
