King's Head Theatre announces new season
The King’s Head Theatre have announced several new productions that will run at their venue in north London from January to April 2016. Highlights include :
This returns after a sell-out Edinburgh Fringe 2015 run, and is an "anarchic" take on Irvine Welsh’s classic novel which went on to become a successful motion picture. The story has been repackaged into an immersive production, where the audience are part of the show, including the notorious 'Worst Toilet in Scotland' scene.
Cosi Fan Tutte
This new production of Mozart’s classic opera will be directed by international opera director Paul Higgins, and will play in rep alongside Louis Nowra’s comedy Cosi, where patients in a mental asylum perform Mozart’s piece whilst questioning madness in the face of the Vietnam War.
Something Something Lazarus
This is a new British musical, written and directed by John Myatt and Simon Arrowsmith. It is described as being performed in a "ground-breaking 'broken cabaret' style".
Details of other productions announced are as follows (click on each show for further details):
