Following the success of his first season at The Bunker, artistic director Chris Sonnex’s new season cements his vision for the theatre, representing and sharing the stories of its community.
My recent theatre trips have included Like You Hate Me and The Amber Trap, two world premieres with women at their core. Here’s a round-up of my on-the-night reactions to each.
Tabitha Mortiboy’s The Amber Trap is the fifth female-led play from Damsel Productions, which is dedicated to presenting work written and staged by women. We talk to Mortiboy about why companies like Damsel are so necessary to redress gender imbalance and how her play considers power structures… and stalking. Time to get booking!
Preparations are underway for Tabitha Mortiboy’s The Amber Trap, the fifth female-led play from Damsel Productions, which premieres this month at London’s Theatre503, where it runs from 24 April to 18 May 2019. Sneak a peek inside rehearsals with our photo gallery – and then get booking!
Women’s voices are always centre stage for Damsel Productions. They now premiere their fifth female-led play, Tabitha Mortiboy’s The Amber Trap, with a limited run season at London’s Theatre503 next month.
Joshua McTaggart will step down as artistic director of The Bunker Theatre in September 2018. David Ralf will continue to lead the London off West End theatre in his new role as executive director.
Grotty is a sharp new play that’s full to the brim with humour, as well as hiding a dark heart – cleverly directed and brilliantly performed.
