Orange Tree's Pomona transfers to the National
The Orange Tree Theatre's production of Pomona, by Alistair McDowall transfers to the National's Temporary Theatre this October, with exact dates to be announced.
Described as a "sinister and surreal thriller", the production will once again be directed by Ned Bennett. The original production won four 'Offie' Awards and received excellent reviews.
"Ollie’s sister is missing. Searching Manchester in desperation, she finds all roads lead to Pomona, an abandoned concrete island at the heart of the city. Here at the centre of everything, journeys end and nightmares are born."
Artistic director of the Orange Tree Paul Miller said of the announcement: "I'm thrilled that Ali's play will be seen by many more people on the South Bank and in Manchester, in Ned Bennett's quite brilliant production. New work is the life-blood of any theatre, and over 4800 people saw this audacious and original piece of theatre in Richmond."
Public booking for the production will open on 1 May 2015. Full cast and creative details are yet to be announced.
