NEWS: The Bunker’s Inaugural Season to Finish with World Premiere of Abigail

Fiona Doyle’s Abigail will conclude The Bunker’s first season, running at the theatre from the 10th January 2017. 


This world premiere production will be directed by Joshua McTaggart and stars Tia Bannon (The Winter’s Tale and Pericles, The Globe) and Mark Rose (King Lear, The Old Vic; Hangmen, Royal Court).

In a snow-covered Berlin, a young woman meets a middle-aged man and they fall in love. As the year progresses, they fall apart. Told across a fractured timeline where the past and present collide, Abigail explores the fragility of love and the desperate measures we all go to in order to keep control in an unpredictable world. In a world where so many things are out of our control, what happens when the one thing you think you need is the one thing you cannot have?

Talking about bringing this play to London’s newest off- West End venue, Artistic Director Joshua McTaggart said: “When I first read Abigail, I was blown away by its beauty and poetic lyricism. There is a darkness to Fiona’s story that allows us to shine a light on some of the more sinister aspects of love and relationships. It is a privilege to be reunited with Fiona once again as we both shared our professional debuts together.”

The production will be designed by Max Dorey, lighting design by Christopher Nairne and sound design by Andrew Josephs.

Abigail will play at The Bunker from the 10th January until the 4th February 2017. For more information and too book tickets visit:
