Have you heard about Sarah Milton’s new play Lucy Light? The world premiere production continues at Theatre N16 in Balham, south London, until 7 October 2017 only. A selection of some of our favourite review quotes is gathered below – as well as social media buzz around the show and full gallery of production shots.
Deadline Day is a delightful spin on the world of football that takes place, intriguingly, in the back of the limo that’s taking (Newcastle) United’s gifted young striker Danny south to sign for Chelsea.
Andrew Maddock, the writer behind the hugely successful IN/OUT (a feeling) has a great talent for creating fully developed and multi-layered characters that don’t come from privileged backgrounds.
‘I ran as fast as I could. I ran and I ran and I ran until I couldn’t run anymore…’ Lonesome Schoolboy return to Theatre N16, after He(art), with Olympiads. A tale about far more than sporting aspiration. Set around Summer 2012 in Wembley, in the shadow of one of London’s biggest sporting venues, Simeon […]
Written as a response to George W Bush’s Republican Party’s war on terror following the attacks in September 2001 only 12 years after this play’s premiere America seems to be run by a God of Hell now whilst Bush, in hindsight, seems like a competent clown.
Casting has been announced for Andrew Maddock’s new play OLYMPILADS, which kicks off Lonesome Schoolboy Productions’ summer season, running at Theatre N16 in Balham, south London, from 8 to 26 August 2017, with a press night on 10 August. Rhys Yates, Michelle Barwood and Neibu Samuel star.
Thick and Thin’s debut Brains showed a lot of promise as a satire of privatised healthcare and their new effort, Suckers is very similar except instead of zombies and privatisation we get vampires and politics.
BoxLess Physical Theatre are a newly formed company, founded by graduates of Italia Conti’s acting course. Their first show, LOOP, is a piece of unconventional movement and storytelling, a tale of people evolving with the music they listen to.
Helen (Laura McKee) is a soulless beauty, Medea (Lucy Avison) a heartless mother and Phaedra (Niamh Branigan) a scorned wife. What characters Euripides put onto the stage, some of the original feminists.
After a critically acclaimed run at the Arts Theatre in 2015, Madelaine Cunningham’s Full Circle plays London again at Theatre N16 this May, which she first performed in her native South Africa. Director, Madison Maylin and writer, Madelaine Cunningham chatted to Break A Leg about the production.
One addition to Theatre N16’s Wandsworth Arts Fringe programme is brought by Black Sheep Productions, a self-confessed ‘Girl Gang of Creatives’. Their latest work, Full Circle plays at the theatre throughout the festival, shining a spotlight on four of the most notorious women in Greek mythology.
It feels fictional but never absurdist, outlandish but never untenable. Andrea’s (Emily Thornton) situation is shocking and slightly outrageous, but is ultimately believable.
Andrea isn’t very well. In solitary confinement at some sort of secure facility, she has no one to talk to other than those who briefly visit and those who live in her head.
It feels like Newport wrote one play involving Aoife and her ability to get whatever she wanted and clumsily turned it into a storyline about domestic violence. Why did the reality-bending aspect even come into this?
Dark Vanilla Jungle is running at Theatre N16 from 25 March to 31 March 2017. Break A Leg chatted to Director, Samson Hawkins about the production.
The play adapts Jenet’s The Maids as it takes the obsession with a rich employer to an obsession with celebrity, which is relevant at a time where it feels like we know a celebrity’s every move.
As a name, Will Power conjures the image of a jack the lad, a confident (perhaps a touch arrogant) young guy with a slight swagger, affable nature and consistently positive outlook on life. In Toby Boutall’s play, William (Anthony Fagan) certainly is that.
Toby Boutall’s play recreates this psychic prison with such fidelity that one can almost touch the walls and smell the faeces smeared thereon.
Andrew Maddock examines the lengths that people will go to in order to protect the ones that they love through the eyes of four very different characters. In He(ART), audiences meet Alice who wants Rhys to sort out his heart condition and Kevin and sister Sam just want to know that their mum is going to be ok.
Andrew Maddock is one of my favourite new writers. He seems to focus on people, rather than characters and stories over storylines. His new play He(art), produced by Lonesome Schoolboy, is about four people and two stories.
