“This play is going to change your life.” It’s a bold statement, but you can’t help but believe Patrick Bayele, director of How To Save The World, when you look into his eyes. He believes. Watch the behind the scenes interview with Bayele and his cast, then book your tickets.
Devised by the show’s company, the modern reinvention of Chekhov’s The Seagull play runs at Studio 9294 from 29-31 July 2019.
How To Save The World is an epic theatre experience revolving around Keira, an idealistic yet troubled drama student who longs to establish herself as a professional playwright by winning the London Student Drama Festival. However, the lengths that she and her cast of closest friends must go to in order to achieve artistic excellence will irrevocably change how they see the world, and themselves.
This new reimagining is created by the cast under the directorship of Bayele, who trained at the Moscow Art Theatre School. His vision transforms the play into a multidisciplinary production, bringing design, music, choreography and cuttingly real characters together to build a hilarious and heartbreaking modern adaptation that promises to be a mosaic of real-life experiences and societal issues which illustrates the perils of our modern youth.
In addition to directing, Bayele also performs in How To Save The World, alongside a cast that also includes Archie Brown, Bea Oliver, Shavariya Padayachee, Alfie Noble, Maria Messias Mendes, Rosie Hodgson and James Garnham.
The play is produced by Bayele’s Pat on the Back Productions and Redgates Theatre, a Hackney Wick-based company providing opportunities for emerging creatives.
How To Save The World runs at Studio 9294, 92 Wallis Rd, Hackney Wick, London E9 5LN from 29 to 31 July 2019, with performances Monday to Wednesday at 7pm. Tickets are priced £10.99. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
