The Bunker Theatre’s new season will include works by Terry Johnson and Izzy Tennyson to highlight the theatre’s commitment to work with exciting playwrights, both established and emerging.
The spring season will open with Ken written by Olivier and Tony award-winning writer Terry Johnson, transferring to the Bunker Theatre from the Hampstead Theatre following a successful run in their Downstairs studio. It will play at the theatre from the 24th January.
This will then be followed by DumbWise Theatre’s production of Electra running at the theatre from the 27th February until the 24th March. This new version of Sophocles’ myth of power and prophecy as a lyrical modern epic with a live punk-rock score.
Meanwhile, Artistic Director Joshua McTaggart will then direct the world premiere of Devil With The Blue Dress by Kevin Armento, playing from the 29th March. The five female cast play will also be the theatre’s first American play to be presented at the venue.
The spring season will conclude with a production of Izzy Tennyson’s Grotty, which offers a dark and savage journey that digs beneath the surface of lesbian subculture in London. It will play from the 1st until the 26th May.
Joshua McTaggart, The Bunker’s Artistic Director said: “It is incredibly exciting to announce The Bunker’s spring 2018 season – our first season of fully curated work since we opened our doors back in October 2016. In the past year we have discovered so much about our space, our audience, and our artists, and these four shows reflect the height of what we want to be doing at The Bunker in bringing ambitious artists and adventurous audiences together into our shared space.”
