Mark Ravenhill’s new play will be performed at the King’s Head Theatre from the 1st to the 26th June.
Mark Ravenhill and the team at the King’s Head Theatre have announced the creative team formed of new generation of theatre makers behind the world premiere of Ravenhill’s new play, which begins performances next month.
Drawing on the traditions of a classic ghost story, Kings Head Theatre’s artistic director Mark Ravenhill prepares to share the story of London’s oldest pub theatre. But there are other stories and other memories hidden in the space. Echoes of a trauma from the past are pushing to manifest on stage.
The creative team for this one man show includes: Iman Qureshi as Associate Director and Suzanne Ahmet as Creative Associate, The Haunting of Susan A will be designed by Simon Fraser, with lighting design by Jo Underwood, sound design by Roly Botha. Maddison Parker will be Production Manager, and the Stage Management team will be Jordan Littlewood and Summer Keeling.
Mark Ravenhill said of the team, “One of the main reasons why I wanted to be artistic director of the Kings Head was the opportunity to work with a new generation of theatre makers. And because Susan A is in many ways such a personal piece – I’ve written it and am playing myself in it – it’s very important to surround myself with new voices to surprise and challenge me. Iman Qureshi provides an insightful outside eye as Associate Director, while Associate Creative Suzanne Ahmet, an actor of fierce intelligence and emotional honesty, is making a vital contribution to the making of the show. With Simon Fraser, Jo Underwood and Roly Botha creating an integrated design of space, light and sound, I believe we have a great team of new talent. If anyone wants to experience the work of the theatre makers of the future I’d encourage them to come along to The Haunting of Susan A.”
The Haunting of Susan A will play at the King’s Head Theatre from the 1st to the 26th June.
