This week former Artistic Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre, Trevor Nunn, returned to Jermyn Street Theatre with Agnes Colander. The play was written by a young Harley Granville Barker in 1900, but wasn’t discovered for around a century, when it was unearthed amongst papers in an archive at the British Museum. It went on to have rehearsed readings at the National Theatre, and a full production directed by Nunn at the Ustinov Studio in Bath. We are thrilled that this wonderful show has now opened and will be running until the 16th March.
The sold out show, My Dad’s Gap Year, is running at the Park Theatre until 23rd February. A wickedly funny and heartfelt story based on true events, and with gay love, straight love, trans love, buddy love and father/son love at its core, Gap Year is a dizzying drama of drinking games, beer bellies, newfound freedom and midlife madness.
Also this week, the talented Stacey Dooley returned to the stage where she discussed her remarkable career and new book, On the Front Line with the Women Who Fight Back , with Viv Groskop. After rapidly selling out her only two scheduled live appearances in 2019, Fane Productions live streamed the evening at the Brighton Dome. People from all over the world, including New York and Cape Town, tuned in to watch this incredible event and we are so excited to be part of a project that makes live entertainment more accessible. The livestream recording is now available on catch up so don’t worry if you missed it!
