The Tricycle Theatre announces Spring/Summer Season

The Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn, north London, has announced details of its forthcoming Spring and Summer season which includes a mix of in-house and visiting productions:

Directed by Indhu Rubasingham, the Tricycle's Artistic Director, this play by John Hollingworth runs from 19 February to 21 March 2015, with an official opening on 24 February 2015. The cast includes Clare Calbraith, Navin Chowdhry, Salma Hoque, Asif Khan, Jacqueline King and Maya Sondhi.

Set in Bradford on the eve of a Conservative Party Conference, the country is in turmoil and one of its most multicultural cities awaits a visit from the Prime Minister. As the nation questions immigration policies and military support in the Middle East, one family face their own internal conflict of faith, belonging, and who gets to call themselves British.

Produced by The Tricycle, the play features designs by Richard Kent, lighting by Oliver Fenwick and sound design by Ben and Max Ringham.

After Electra
Written by by April De Angelis and directed by Samuel West, this production from the Theatre Royal Plymouth will run at the venue from 7 April to 2 May 2015, with an official opening on 9 May 2015.

"It’s Virgie’s birthday and, as she approaches her 80’s, she is bucking convention with a very surprising trick up her sleeve. But always a more committed artist than mother, Virgie has not reckoned on her family and friends’ determination to thwart her distinctly unusual birthday plans. Will her loved ones consent to her last wish, or could the secrets of their past stand in the way?"

The Father
Produced by Theatre Royal Bath Productions and Tricycle Theatre, this play by Florian Zeller is in translation by Christopher Hampton and runs from 7 May to 13 June 2015 with an official opening on 12 May 2015.

"Now 80 years old, Andre was once a tap dancer. He lives with his daughter Anne and her husband Antoine. Or was he an engineer whose daughter Anne lives in London with her new lover, Pierre? The thing is, he is still wearing his pyjamas, and he can’t find his watch. He is starting to wonder if he’s losing control."

Starring Kenneth Cranham, the production is directed by James Macdonald and features design by Miriam Buether, sound design by Christopher Shutt and lighting by Guy Hoare.

Verdi's La Traviata
This will mark the first production by OperaUpClose at the Tricycle, as Verdi's popular opera comes to the stage in a brand new way. The story of Violetta, a so-called ‘fallen woman’ who sacrifices her own happiness for the sake of her lover’s family and future, this production is set in the 1920s underworld of speakeasies and bootlegging and reveals the hypocrisy and heartache behind the glittering façade of parties.

Adapted and directed by Robin Norton-Hale it features orchestration by Harry Blake. The production runs from 22 June to 4 July 2015, with an official opening on 23 June 2015.

Tickets for all productions in the season are now on sale.
