The King’s Head Theatre has confirmed that the independent production company will become the theatre’s new associate company.
Atticist‘s first production, Life According to Saki, won the Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe and transferred to New York in 2017. Meanwhile, more recently its production of Steven Berkoff’s East has just recently completed a sold-out run at the King’s Head Theatre.
Talking about the news Bridie Bischoff, one of the two producers at Atticist, says: “It has been a pleasure working with the King’s Head Theatre team on EAST and this is an exciting opportunity for us to continue our relationship. It will help us to experiment with new productions and to encourage the development of new writing, as well as welcoming new creative relationships and collaborations.”
Atticist join Charles Court Opera as the second Associate Company for the King’s Head Theatre.
King’s Head Theatre Artistic Director Adam Spreadbury-Maher commented: “Atticist are an incredibly exciting emerging company who share a lot of the same values as our team at the King’s Head Theatre. They work incredibly hard to deliver such a high standard of work, and I can’t wait to see what’s next.”
