Disgraced, by Ayad Akhtar, directed by Nadia Fall , from 17 May to 15 June 2013. New York. Today. Corporate lawyer Amir Kapoor is happy, in love and about to land the biggest career promotion of his life. But beneath the veneer, success has come at a price. When Amir and his artist wife, Emily, host an intimate dinner party at their Upper East Side apartment, what starts out as a friendly conversation soon escalates into something far more damaging.
Josephine and I, written and performed by Cush Jumbo, from 12 July to 10 Aug 2013. From the Ragtime rhythms of St Louis and the intoxicating sounds of 1920s Paris, to a quiet flat in present day London, ‘Josephine and I’ intertwines the story of a modern day girl searching for where she fits in, with that of one of the greatest, yet forgotten, stars of the 20th century
The Herd, written by the popular actor, Rory Kinnear, in his debut play, directed by Howard Davies, from 13 Sep to 12 Oct 2013. It's Andy Griffith's 21st Birthday. Not that he's counting. But his mother Carol is. Counting the minutes until he arrives, counting the unexpected guests, counting the times that this has happened before.
There will also be a production in The Bush Attic Space:
Moth, by Declan Greene, directed by Prasanna Puwanarajah , from 29 March to 8 June 2013. Sebastian is 'that kid' at high school. He’s weird. He smells. He’s obsessed with comics, and talks to himself. But after a catastrophic fallout with his only friend, Claryssa, he wakes up with a moth in a jar by his bed, and a calling to save the souls of all humanity. And so begins the Passion of Sebastian: a journey into a terrifying and starless night.
