A haunting exploration of human nature with a side helping of political intrigue, Outlying Islands is highly recommended for bird-watchers and people-watchers alike.
In the second of my recent back-to-back post-show Q&As with King’s Head Theatre productions, I was at the Off West End powerhouse’s original home in Islington for Atticist’s first London revival of David Greig’s 2002 play Outlying Islands.
There are some stellar performances and a stunning soundscape from Atticist in Outlying Islands at the King’s Head Theatre.
Last seen in London back in 2002 at the Royal Court (following a debut at Edinburgh’s Traverse Theatre), David Greig’s Outlying Islands makes a return to the capital, with Atticist’s new production at the King’s Head Theatre in Islington.
Director Jessica Lazar spoke to Love London Love Culture about Atticist’s upcoming return to the King’s Head Theatre with its production of Outlying Islands.
As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Thursday 17 January 2019, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock talks to award-winning company Atticist about their first revival of David Greig’s Outlying Islands. Got any questions?
This lively revival of Steven Berkoff’s 1975 modern classic is energetically sweaty, if a bit messy as well.
East is arguably a Hobbesian perspective of some white working-class East Enders whose lives are “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short” due to being marginalised from mainstream society.
Jessica Lazar’s production of East is imaginatively directed, satisfyingly choreographed and acted with commitment by a talented cast within the tight boundaries of the King’s Head Theatre’s postage stamp stage.
Steven Berkoff’s masterpiece EAST will open the new year at London’s King’s Head Theatre, where it made its London debut in 1975. The new production, directed by Life According to Saki’s Jessica Lazar, runs from 9 January to 3 February 2018.
Life-affirming: Life According To Saki, Atticist’s production upstairs at Adam House, is a wonderfully staged, hugely appealing production.
