...featuring the final LAMDA productions from our 2013 graduating class.
The season boasts two world premieres: The Shelter by Matt Morrison and Hackney Carriage by Ella Hickson. Both plays have been created in collaboration with our graduating actors and professional directors as part of LAMDA’s New Writing Programme. A unique element of our training, this programme is just one strand of our work to support emerging playwrights and help develop the dramatic art form.
Sitting alongside these new works are plays by some of the UK’s most exciting contemporary playwrights – Bruce Norris, Mark Ravenhill, Dennis Kelly, Rebecca Lenkiewicz and David Greig – as well as Aphra Behn’s Restoration rom-com, The Rover, Alan Ayckbourn’s 1970s farce, Absent Friends and the stylish musical thriller, City of Angels
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support of our work. I know that you will join me in wishing our graduating actors, stage managers and technicians every success as they take their first steps into the industry. Watch out for their professional debuts in theatres and cinemas near you...
