The world première of Dyl by Mark Weinman opens at The Old Red Lion Theatre

Moya Productions and Old Red Lion Theatre will present the world première of Dyl by Mark Weinman which runs at the Old Red Lion Theatre in Angel Islington from 9 May to 3 June 2017 with an official opening on 12 May.

Directed by Clive Judd the production has dramaturgy by Gus Miller, lighting by Will Monks, set design by Jemima Robinson and sound design by Giles Thomas.

"James is 400 miles from home. A new career as a rigger - two weeks onshore, two weeks offshore. James exists between two very different spaces; and his daughter Dyl is with him in neither of them. Instead he has Ryan, his live-in landlord - sarcastic, free-spirited and liable to say what he thinks before he thinks what he says. As James focuses on finding the answers from within himself, he risks losing the very relationships that can keep him on track. A sad comedy, about isolation, the righting of wrongs and shouldering life’s responsibilities."

Artistic Director of the venue Clive Judd said of the news: “I am delighted to launch my first full season as Artistic Director at the Old Red Lion with the world première of this brilliantly funny and moving first play by Mark Weinman. This project marks a new phase of our working relationship following our collaboration as director and actor on Captain Amazing in 2013.”

Moya Productions specialises in new writing, and is run by Caitlin Albery Beavan, Aron Rollin and Tom Miller.

Tickets for the production are now on sale.
