Simon Russell Beale, Patsy Ferran and Eben Figueiredo will play all the parts and share the storytelling in a new version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, directed and devised by Nicholas Hytner at London’s Bridge Theatre.
As part of the one-person play series which has reopened the Bridge Theatre, Quarter Life Crisis brings the story of Alicia to the stage as she approaches her 26th birthday.
London Theatre Company has announced its repertoire plans to reopen the Bridge Theatre during September and October 2020, “assuming that the Government gives the go ahead for indoor performances with socially distanced audiences”.
October is Black History Month. And this Black History Month, in the year marking two major UK milestones – the centenary of women’s suffrage and the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the Windrush generation – Ovalhouse launches a new annual event for Black Women in Theatre.
Ovalhouse recently announced its new Summer Season 2018 ahead of the demolition of Ovalhouse’s current home and the theatre’s move to a new, purpose-built facility in 2020. Owen Calvert-Lyons, Ovalhouse’s Head of Theatre & Artist Development, told us more.
Next up in our Spotlight feature is Quarter Life Crisis, which plays Edinburgh Festival from 3 – 27 August 2017. I caught up with writer and actor Yolanda Mercy.
