Camden People's Theatre announces 2016 Season
The Camden People's Theatre in Euston, north London, has announced details of its current and forthcoming season at the venue. The fringe theatre will be home to numerous festivals, long running productions and one night performances. It will be the home of the 20th annual Sprint festival of new and unusual theatre, as well as launching Camden Youth Theatre.
Highlights of the season include Calculating Kindness by Lydia Adetunji, presented by CPT and Undercurrent which runs from 29 March to 16 April 2016.
The drama explores the extraordinary life of American scientist George Price (1922-75), who lived yards from CPT in Tolmers Square. Price formulated an equation widely acknowledged as the mathematical explanation for the evolution of altruism - something science had been trying to do since Darwin. The magnitude of this discovery shook Price's atheism to the core. Three years later, Price was discovered in a squat having taken his own life.
Comedian Will Adamsdale will present his new play The Joke from 17 May to 4 June 2016. Featuring an Englishman, an Irish man and a Scotsman who become trapped in a joke, the play explores humour, countries, life, and why we need them.
An interactive piece of theatre Remote runs from 19 to 30 April 2016 and is a described as a participatory exploration of the algorithms that make the internet tick.
As well as a whole host of shorter running productions, the theatre will also host venues and producers from across the UK as part of 'A Nation’s Theatre' festival from 3 – 19 May 2016 which is a London wide celebration of theatre making across the nation. Tickets for the production are now on sale.
