Artistic Director Martin Mulgrew is pleased to announce plans for the Autumn
As January finally clears off, and our wonderful production of A Passage to India, directed by Simona Hughes is set to open (Wednesday 5th February) what better time to announce the remainder of 2020’s artistic programme.
The re-scheduled Cleo, Camping, Emmanuelle and Dick opens the autumn season (Wednesday 23rd September to Saturday 3rd October).
Our second production of the Autumn season sees Mike Nower return to direct Peter Shaffer’s Equus (Wednesday 7th Oct to Saturday 17th October). Equus, written in 1973, based in part upon true events, tells the story of a psychiatrist who attempts to treat a young man with a pathological fascination with horses.
Autumn sees the Tower return to Shakespeare with Hamlet (Wednesday 28th October to Saturday 7th November) directed by Ciara Robley, making her Tower directorial debut having been Assistant Director on a number of productions. This production will feature the Tower’s first female Prince of Denmark.
Our fourth production will be Nine Night by Natasha Gordon (Wednesday 11th November to Saturday 21st November), directed by Emilia Teglia. Premiering at the National Theatre, Gordon’s acclaimed play is a touching and very funny exploration of the rituals of family, focussing on the traditional Nine-Nights, a funerary tradition practised in the Caribbean of an extended wake that lasts for several days. This will be the first non-professional production.
Joining us again this autumn will be the Anna Fiorentini Theatre School and the Musical Theatre Academy rounding off the year with their panto.
Finally watch out for a surprise announcement soon of the Tower’s own Christmas show this year!
A little something for everyone.
Audition information will appear soon. Good luck if you are going up for any of the roles on offer especially all the budding would-be Hamlets!
