As part of her ongoing event series, on Tuesday 12 March 2019, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock will be at the opening of the relaunched Lion & Unicorn Theatre to quiz the team of theatremakers about their exciting plans. Got any questions?
Exciting things are going on at the Lion & Unicorn Theatre, care of Proforca Theatre Company. And I’m thrilled to be invited to help them launch their new-look venue and programming plans to the industry.
Proforca Theatre Company, which has quickly built a reputation with its fringe productions including Reading Gaol and Feel, is taking over management of the Lion & Unicorn Theatre, the 60-seat black box studio based above the Lion & Unicorn pub in Kentish Town, north London.
Under Proforca, and its artistic director David Brady, the relaunched Lion & Unicorn Theatre will provide a home for the best in fringe theatre talent.
The new Lion & Unicorn officially launches with Proforca’s own acclaimed productions of Feel and spin-off series of new monologues Feel More, transferring to the theatre following its recent run at The Space and a short tour. Programming submissions for spring, summer and Camden Fringe are also now being accepted via the theatre’s new website. For more information and to apply, visit www.thelionandunicorntheatre.com.
David Brady said:
“In conjunction with the brilliant friends and partners we’ve made over the last few years, we want to create a fringe theatre venue with the reputation to produce brilliant work from the best that The Fringe has to offer.
“Whoever you are, and wherever you come from, the Lion & Unicorn Theatre can be the place where you can be who you want to be. Taking over the theatre is going to be a fantastic adventure, and we hope that everyone will come along with us for the trip of a lifetime.”
To celebrate, and announce further plans, Proforca is inviting industry guests and theatregoers for a special performance of Feel on Tuesday 12 March 2019.
Before the Feel performance, I’ll chair a Q&A with artistic director David Brady and several of his collaborators, including deputy director Jess Barton, Alexander Knott of Boxless Theatre and writer/performer Lauren Gauge. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE TICKETS!
