In his first season as artistic director of Theatre N16, Scott Ellis presents a slew of new writing.
Olympilads by Andrew Maddock, produced by Lonesome Schoolboy and directed by Niall Phillips, reunites the team that presented He(art) at Theatre N16 earlier this year.
Theatre N16 executive director (and former artistic director) Jamie Eastlake will present his new show Deadline Day by John Hickman and Steve Robertson: a bitter sweet tale about football, greed and the North-South divide.
Ten emerging artists debut a selection of original and varied works exploring feminism today in Maiden Speech: A festival of fresh feminist voices. Theatre N16 will also produce a new play by Sarah Milton, directed by Scott Ellis.
End of the Line Theatre, one of Hull Truck’s supported companies, will present Poverty Porn by Catriona Kerridge, followed by a series of military-themed plays (including IED by Martin Mcnamara and Last Man Standing by Judith Cole). Last Man Standing will be run as part of Theatre N16’s First Credits scheme, which will give seven new graduate actors their first professional experience in the industry.
After the success of The Snow Queen, Theatre N16 will also produce a new telling of Peter Pan, adapted by Frankie Meredith, to play during October half term.
The season will also see the return of N16 Presents: four emerging writers will receive two months of support culminating in a showcase of four brand new short plays. Scott Ellis says:
“My first season puts writers and fine writing at the forefront of every production. I am excited to include 2 brand new commissions, which I will direct myself; returning writers, from the most successful of recent N16 productions and exploring fresh new voices at the cutting edge of the London Fringe scene.”
