Jermyn Street Theatre announces season April to June
The Jermyn Street Theatre, a fringe theatre in central London, has announced details of its season from April to June 2015, continuing their 21st anniversary year.
The season will begin with A Level Playing Field, written by Jonathan Lewis and directed by Chris Popert which will run from 14 April to 6 May 2015.
"In the music room of a top fee-paying London school, a group of 18-year-olds must sit out an hour of “isolation” to cover a clash of exams and avoid the risk of cheating. But their supervising teacher has failed to turn up. In dealing with the dilemmas of the situation, the pupils gradually reveal a darker side to the pressures they are under."
The season will continue with Stewart Pemutt's play Home for Wayward Women, directed by Anthony Biggs, which will run from 12 May to 6 June 2015.
"Retired psychiatrist Joy Westendarp has opened up her lovely home to women who have been rejected by the mental health system. Sixty-one year virgin and newcomer Alice doesn't appear to have any problems, but she is bent on taking the place over. The promiscuous Suzy and manically religious Phyllis meanwhile are making a play for the new intern George: scrawny and pompous, he is the only available man. With the threat of a government inspection, Joy starts to lose a grip on the women and Alice stealthily starts to take over."
The season concludes with Told Look Younger by Stephen Wyatt, directed by Sue Dunderdale and presented by Eldarin Yeong which runs from 9 June to 4 July 2015.
"Three encounters between three gay men in their early sixties in a restaurant where neither the menu nor the decor are ever the same. After years alone, following the death of his lover, Colin is planning to marry his nineteen year-old Turkish boyfriend. Is it love, lust or loneliness which drives him? And is Achmed simply a gold-digger in search of a UK passport?"
Tickets for the new season are now on sale.
