The Wilton’s Music Hall has announced details of its upcoming Spring season.
This newly announced season will see the venue teaming up with many production companies to host a range of theatre, music, opera, spoken word, and cabaret.
The 2023 season will begin with Seabright Productions Ltd production of Buffy Revamped [9-13 January], which returns to the venue. Ideal for fans of the hit 90s TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer in just 70 minutes, as told through the eyes of the one person who knows it inside out…Spike. This show comes from creator Brendan Murphy recently won Best Play at the Worldwide Comedy Awards for Friend: The One with Gunther.
This will then be followed by Told by an Idiot’s acclaimed production of Charlie and Stan [18January-04 February]. Telling the story of the comedy duo, it will take audiences back to the heydays of Victorian music hall and Hollywood silent pictures, thanks to a piano score by Zoe Rahman and projected captions.
Making its UK premiere at Wiltons (following previews at Hull Truck and Northern Stage) is a new play by Anders Lustgarten, The City and The Town [21–25 February]. Directed by Dritero Kasapi, it is a play that focuses on the political divides and problems facing our country today.
Dead Poets Live returns to Wilton’s for three nights of An Evening of Sylvia Plath [07-09 February], starring the award-winning actor, Denise Gough. Sixty years on from Sylvia Plath’s death, this show retraces the exhilarating, breath-taking, and nail-biting ascent that Plath made, with her most authoritative and riveting poetry, some of which was written in her final months.
The Faction will bring their production of Macbeth to the venue from the 14th to the 18th February, performed entirely by two actors and told from the perspective of the Macbeths.
Other highlights of the season include the return of writer and actor Mark Farrelly, with his vibrant new play Jarman [07,09 & 10 March] as well as his play Naked Hope [08 and 11 March]. Meanwhile, Oracle Productions presents a brand-new reinvigoration of Gilbert and Sullivan’s surreal comedy meets spooky melodrama Ruddigore [14–25 March].
The season will conclude with the smash-hit sell out show at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe Paris from Piaf to Pop [28 March- 01 April] from award winning chanteuse, Christine Bovill, who is one of Europe’s finest interpreters of French song and no stranger to Wilton’s.
