The Tricycle Theatre has announced a new series of ‘In Conversation With’ events, with all monies raised going towards the company’s activities, including their extensive Creative Learning programme and the Tricycle’s current Capital Development Project. The events feature a special one hour long conversation with leading industry professionals before a Q&A session, hosted by returning curator and longstanding supporter of the Tricycle, Jim Carter. He hosts evenings with Paul Greengrass, Danny Boyle, and a joint conversation with Dame Judi Dench and Dame Maggie Smith.
Jim Carter said today:
“It’s wonderful to be returning to the Tricycle, one of London’s most vibrant theatres, to talk to these legendary figures of stage and screen, in what I hope will be an unmissable series of events.”
Artistic Director of the Tricycle, Indhu Rubasingham added: “We’re enormously grateful to Jim and his wonderful guests for their time and support for the company. I am excited and thrilled that the Tricycle will be hosting these very special Artists for a unique series of events that will not only help us to fundraise, but also provide an extraordinary experience for our audiences. I can’t wait!”
