Visible Theatre Presents Who Do We Think We Are?
Visible Theatre Ensemble have announced their production of Who Do We Think We Are?, which will run at the Southwark Playhouse in south London from 29 October to 15 November 2014, with an official opening on 30 October 2014.
This new play draws on an incredible set of personal histories and memories and is presented by the UK’s first professional theatre ensemble formed entirely of older performers directed by Sue Lefton.
To mark the centenary of the start of the First World War, this play offers a personal take on the last hundred years of history, from 1914 to the present day. Using real life family histories, photographs and memories of the cast, the play draws on real life experiences such as a life in a Siberian prison camp during the Russian revolution, childhood experiences in India under the Raj, and an escape from the Warsaw Ghetto.
The cast for the production includes Ann Firbank, Andrew Hawkins, Imola Gaspar, Jamina Daniel, John Moraitis, Paul Humpoletz, Norma Cohen, Ruth Posner, Togo Igawa and Trevor Allan Davies.
Visible Theatre Ensemble is made up of professional actors of many years standing who each bring a wealth of experience across theatre, film and television. The company is founded on the belief that tapping the energy and talent of older theatre performers can reap rich artistic rewards and serve as an inspiration for audiences.
