The Clapham based theatre has confirmed details of its upcoming Autumn season.
The Omnibus Theatre has confirmed details of its first shows for its upcoming Autumn season, which will begin with Christian Graham’s Boy’s Cry, a new play that confronts the constraints of modern masculinity. It will run at the theatre from the 30th August to the 9th September.
Meanwhile, David Neita pays tribute to the incredible and indomitable spirit of the Windrush Generation with Uplift , which will be performed at the venue from the 1st to the 4th September.
Elsewhere, At the Feet of Jesus is a new play by Adanna Oji and will be directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair. Playing at the theatre from the 6th to the 11th September, it is a story of arson, family and the 2014 Rio de Janiero World Cup.
The season will then continue with The Duration, playing from the 7th to the 26th September. Marking the 20th anniversary since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Bruce Graham’s play examines its impact on one family as well as the grief of a nation.
It was also confirmed that the theatre will present a revival of Peter Gill’s Small Change from the 14th September until the 2nd October. The play was originally set to be revived at the theatre last year but had to be cancelled due to the pandemic.
Tickets for all the newly announced shows are on sale now.
Talking about the news, Artistic Director of Omnibus Theatre Marie McCarthy said: ” Boys Cry and state of the [art]’s How To Build [The City] emerged through our flagship artist development programme Engine Room. Christian Graham’s Boys Cry strips back our definition of manhood and pushes the boundaries of modern masculinity. state of the [art] continue to smash traditional performance structure to smithereens and piece it back together again, in their interactive show based on the epic of Gilgamesh.From Cardiff to Rio de Janeiro, Small Change and At The Feet of Jesus finally take to the Omnibus stage after being cancelled as part of our Summer 2020 season. Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE returns to Omnibus Theatre to direct At The Feet of Jesus, a new play about family, arson and the 2014 World Cup. Then Peter Gill’s Small Change receives a long-awaited revival, having not been staged in London since 2008. There’s no production more timely this season than All Ignite Theatre’s The Duration, the world premiere of a new American play staged on the 20 year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Writer Bruce Graham poignantly explores the impact of the events on one family, alongside the raw collective grief of a nation.”
