Hampstead Theatre Downstairs autumn season


The Hampstead Theatre Downstairs, in north London, announces three productions this autumn...

Donny's Brain, by Rona Munro, from 22 Sep to 20 Oct 2012. Directed by Anna Ledwich, produced by Hampstead Theatre Production / The Peter Wolff Trust. Donny wakes in hospital, unable to recall the car accident, confused because the love of his life, Emma, isn't at his bedside... and unable to recognise the strange woman in the room who can't stop weeping.

Blue Sky, by Clare Bayley, from 24 Oct to 10 Nov 2012. Directed by Elizabeth Freestone, produced by Pentabus Theatre. A thriller about justice and journalism, Blue Sky investigates what might be happening in the English countryside in the dead of the night.

Ignorance, by Steve Waters, from 15 Nov to 15 Dec 2012. Directed by Nathan Curry, produced by Hampstead Theatre Production / The Peter Wolff Trust. 1949. Small town Colorado. A group of regular American students struggle to accept a foreigner in their midst; their unthinking behaviour will have terrible consequences that are to change world history. In London, sixty years later, a university professor's work analysing those consequences takes on a frightening personal dimension when Layla Ahmad walks into his office...
