Can parents be as childish as their offspring? Who’s really being assessed when it comes to Parents’ Evening at school? Jermyn Street Theatre has released a fantastic new show trailer for the European premiere of Bathsheba Doran’s 2010 Off-Broadway hit, with the action now relocated to the UK. Time to get booking!
Parents’ Evening, marking London-born playwright Bathsheba Doran’s return to the UK after years of stage and screen success in New York, runs at Jermyn Street Theatre from 3 to 27 October 2018, with a press night on 5 October.
“Would you please remember that it’s not us they’re assessing.”
She’s been disruptive in class. She’s rude to the teachers. And now she wants to learn the trumpet. But whose performance is really being judged? A mother and father prepare to discuss their daughter’s progress at the local primary school, but their rare opportunity for some quality time together begins to test the bonds of love, work and family.
The European premiere of Parents’ Evening, helmed by Jermyn Street’s deputy director Stella Powell Jones, stars RSC and Globe veteran Peter Hamilton Dyer and Amy Marston. Doran has transposed Parents’ Evening into a UK setting for its European premiere. The production is directed by Stella Powell Jones and designed by Charlotte Espiner, with lighting by Will Reynolds and sound by Yvonne Gilbert.
Parents’ Evening runs from 3 to 27 October 2018 at Jermyn Street Theatre, 16b Jermyn Street, London SW1Y 6ST. Performances run Mondays to Fridays at 7.30pm, with Saturday matinees at 3.30pm. Tickets are priced £10-£30. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
