The theatre has confirmed its autumn season will feature four newly written work, running from the 8th August all the way through to the 7th January.
Theatre503’s new season of work will cover topics such as immigration, military occupation, as well as a new play written by Amy Schindler.
The new season will open with Stephen Laughton’s Screens (8th August – 3rd September) which focuses on a Turkish-Cypriot family barely treading water, clinging onto a sense of self and identity as it suddenly begins to unravel. It will be directed by Jonathan O’Boyle.
Burning Bridges by Amy Schindler will then follow, running from the 13th September until the 8th October. Directed by Sally Knyvette, the play examines the dilemmas of a young woman having to live with autism.
Meanwhile, running at the theatre from the 25th October to the 19th November is a production of The Acedian Pirates. Written by Jay Taylor and directed by Bobby Brook, the play aims to challenge our understanding of mythology and military occupation.
As the season heads to Christmas, Theatre503 will present a production of Scrooge and the Seven Dwarves as this year’s family festive production, running from the 22nd November until the 7th January. The show puts a nice twist on A Christmas Carol, with scrooge having to find his way from the land of fairytales back to the present day before it is too late.
