The King’s Head Theatre’s will celebrate its 50th anniversary next year.

Details of the King’s Head Theatre’s Spring 2020 season have been unveiled by Artistic Director Adam Spreadbury-Maher, as the theatre prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary next year.

The new season will begin with a revival of Tom Wright’s play Undetectable, following its run at the theatre in March this year. Running from the 12th February until the 7th March, it is a love story that looks at all the demons we all have to face.

This will then be followed by Charles Court Opera’s take on Gilbert & Sullivan’s Iolanthe – a satire looking at power, privilege and parliamentary democracy. It will run at the theatre from the 12th March until 11th April.

The season is also set to include the world premiere of No Strings Attached by Charles Enstie. Having won the  2019 Adrian Pagan Award for new writing, this two hander exploring same-sex relationships and family ties will play from the 14th April until the 2nd May.  

A production of Verdi’s Aida will complete the Spring season, playing from the 6th May until the 6th June. It is a brand new English production, placed in the present day world of border controls and mass migration.

Talking about the season, Artistic Director Adam Spreadbury-Maher, said: ‘We’re kicking off what may well turn out to be the most momentous year in the King’s Head Theatre’s history with four fantastic productions that embrace everything we stand for – championing bold new voices such as Charles Entsie, staging high quality and accessible opera or celebrating LGBTQI+ stories and artists. I am incredibly proud of this season, which explores many different forms of love across many different kinds of boundaries, and cannot wait to share these wonderful shows with our audiences next Spring.’
