After success with Boy Stroke Girl, which had its third London run earlier this year, Golden Age Theatre company returns to Camden’s Etcetera Theatre next week with a new play examining norms around gender, sexuality and identity.

Tiresia, written and directed by Ian Dixon Potter, has a limited season at the Etcetera Theatre from 1 to 16 July 2017 only.

Tiresia, an enigmatic young artist, apparently recovering from a serious accident, faces a challenge to her identity and her sexuality. Tiresia’s difficulties are compounded when she undergoes a unique transformation which calls into question conventional notions of memory, personality and even the process of evolution.

Does Tiresia’s experience throw new light on the nature of time and the power of the unconscious mind?  How is her fate connected to the disappearance of a famous but reclusive artist?  The cast of Tiresia are:  Natasha Killam, Marissa Joseph, Louise Morell and Albert Clack.

Golden Age Theatre Company is dedicated to creating theatre which explores ‘big ideas’ in both historical and contemporary settings. Other recent productions have included Good King Richard, The Dead Shepherd, The Resurrectionist and The School of Light.

Later this year, the company brings two more Ian Dixon Potter plays to London: The Test, which explores the nature of consciousness via a scientist using the ‘Turing Test’, runs at the White Bear Theatre 19 September to 1 October; and Hiding Heidi, about an immigrant threatened with deportation, runs at Etcetera Theatre from 13 November to 3 December 2017.
