Nigel Harman is to direct a double bill of Steven Berkoff one-act plays Lunch and The Bow of Ulysses at Trafalgar Studios from Thursday 6 October – Saturday 5
Both Lunch (1983) and its sequel The Bow of Ulysses (2002), examines the relationship between a couple when they first meet and have, an abortive one-night-stand; and how they are years later after two decades of marriage.
The creative team will also include Olivier Award-nominated sound designers Ben & Max Ringham, designer Lee Newby (Grand Hotel, Dogfight), lighting designer Joshua Carr (Hangmen, West End) and Offie Award Best Choreographer Alistair David as movement director.
Casting for the production has yet to be announced.
Talking about the news, director Nigel Harman said: “I’m intrigued to put these plays on stage and see how an audience will react. They are a challenge to watch. Some people will laugh and enjoy the theatricality of them. Others may find them uncomfortable in the way they hold a dark mirror up to relationships. One thing’s for sure, they don’t pull any punches.”
Lunch and The Bow of Ulysses will play at the Trafalgar studios from the 6th October until the 5th November. To book tickets visit: ATG Tickets .
