The Print Room theatre, based at the Coronet in Notting Hill, west London, has announced its second season at its new home.
The season will begin with the London premiere of Title and Deed by Will Eno, which runs from 14 January to 7 February 2015, with an official opening on 16 January 2015.
Directed by Judy Hegarty Lovett, the production comes to London following a run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival earlier this year. Presented by Print Room in association with Gare St Lazare Ireland, the production will star Conor Lovett.
"A nameless traveller from a far off place searches for connection and solace in an unknown country in this funny and sad meditation on mortality, loneliness, innocence, home, family, love, funerals, words, and the world."
The venue will then host a week-long dance festival from 23 to 28 February 2015, with the production 1898, which features four short pieces celebrating the year the Coronet was built choreographed by three emerging choreographers and Print Room artistic associate Hubert Essakow.
The season concludes with A Breakfast of Eels by Robert Holman which runs from 16 March to 11 April 2015, with an official opening on 20 March 2015. Directed by Robert Hastie, the production will star Matthew Tennyson and Andrew Sheridan.
"In the haze of late summer in a London garden, the apples have all fallen to the ground. It is the day of Daddy's funeral, and two orphans find themselves suddenly alone, with nobody to cling to but each other. The play is about the pain of growing up, the difficulty of survival and the journey to create an identity and sense of belonging in a world without parents."
Speaking of the announcement, Artistic director Anda Winters said:
"It has been a source of great joy and pride to have opened our first season in the Coronet, which has been met with such enormous warmth by our diverse audience. With our second season, we hope that our work will continue to attract people from across the city to our new home, and that we will be able to open more of the building for public use."
