The Tricycle Theatre announces new season


The Tricycle Theatre has announced the line up for Artistic Directors Nicholas Kent's last season.

17 Nov - 10 Dec 2011
The Riots Written by Gillian Slovo, directed by Nicolas Kent From tweets by taxi drivers, to moment-by-moment accounts by riot police, it will build a real-time picture of the riots as they unfolded. And then, from interviews with politicians, police, teachers, lawyers, community leaders, as well as victims and on-lookers, it will analyse what happened, why it happened, and what we should do towards making a better future for ourselves and our city.

15 Dec - 04 Feb 2012
Stones In His Pockets Directed by Indhu Rubasingham, written by Marie Jones, design by Rosa Maggiora, sound by David McSeveney, lighting by Malcolm Rippeth. County Kerry, Ireland. A rural community is turned upside down by the arrival of an American film crew on location to capture ‘real’ Ireland for their latest Hollywood blockbuster. When locals Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn are employed as extras for the film, they, like the rest of the village, struggle to present the Americans’ romanticised Ireland, a stark contrast to the reality of daily life. Over 15 characters are portrayed by 2 actors.
