Talking about being part of the theatre’s first season Josie Rourke said: “Nica has built a beautiful and vibrant new theatre for London and I’m proud to be part of her opening session. When I saw the new auditorium, saying “yes” to directing on that wonderful stage was one of the quickest answers I’ve ever given. I remember well from opening the new Bush Theatre the peculiar struggles and challenges of opening the doors on a new theatre and I’m honoured to be part of this important endeavour. As things feel tough, Nica has doubled down on theatre’s future in the capital and I’m want to support her and her team’s courage by creating a joyful and celebratory show for one of theatre’s most and intimate, welcoming new homes, @sohoplace. “
The creative team behind the production is also set to include: designs by Rob Jones, lighting by Howard Harrison, sound by John Leonard and music by Michael Bruce.
