The upcoming season at the theatre is set to include productions of The Importance of Being Earnest and #HonestAmy.
The Turbine Theatre has announced details of its Spring 2020 season, which includes a combination of new work and emerging talent from visiting companies, as well as the transfer of one of the Edinburgh Festival’s 2019 hit shows, #HonestAmy.
This newly announced season will open with Burlesque’d Live!, running across three evenings from the 30th January until the 1st February. The show is directed by Ashley Luke Lloyd and set to star Kelsey Beth Crossley and Charlotte Gooch.
Meanwhile, direct from the West End Riot Act will be performed for one night only on Sunday 16th February. The show explores the LGBT rights movement over the last sixty years.
Transferring to London following a successful run at the Barn Theatre, The Importance of Being Earnest is reimagined by two actors who play every character. It will play at the Turbine Theatre from the 18th February until the 29th February.
Other shows included in the programme include: Warped Sacrifice,an original play with fast-paced movement sequences and a poignant soundtrack; Guy, an uplifting new musical by the creators of 2017’s much-hyped, multi-award-winning The Marriage of Kim K; CTC Company’s new hit show, Identity; Westminster Cathedral Choir School’s brand new musical version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream; and Amy Booth-Steel’s heartfelt, one-woman show #HonestAmy, directed by Kathy Burke.
The Spring season will also feature the previously announced return of Paul Taylor-Mills’ MTFestUK, which runs at the theatre from 3rd to the 15th February. A celebration of new musical theatre from around the world, the festival’s 2020 musical line-up and casting will be announced in January 2020.
Talking about the news, Artistic Director of the Turbine Theatre Paul Taylor- Mills said: “I’m delighted that our Spring 2020 season is a celebration of new and emerging talent. This is one of the most important strands of our vision and integral part of the future of The Turbine and indeed the theatre landscape in London and beyond.”
