Peter Pan

July 23-27, 2019 Running time: 105 minutes Canine child-care, pirate-prosthetics, horologically-challenged reptiles, and a boy with a serious hormone deficiency, not to mention a terrible case of ADHD. A strange, charming, and surprisingly blood-thirsty classic of children’s theatre – so be prepared for a radical, modern staging!   Director: Tom Melly Cast: Mrs Darling/Adult Wendy – Audrey Lindsay Wendy/Jane – Róisín Deady Mr Darling – Martin Copland-Gray Michael – Alice Kiff John – David Clements Peter Pan – Laarni Cornista-Hollebon Liza – Orla Caitlin Lost Boy – Panit […]

Members’ Event: Random Reads

Random Reads – 29 June, 2019 The Importance of Being Earnest “I never travel without my diary.

The first of what I hope becomes a regular event in the South London Theatre social calendar, Random Reads aims to be a fast-paced, hopefully hilarious, reading of a […]

Director Needed for Current Season!

Due to the unavailability of rights for the planned production, SLT now has an open slot in the Autumn/Winter Season and we would love to find a director to fill it. But speed is of the essence as the Autumn Auditions are already starting! So for a week we are reopening submissions. As time is short we would ideally love to hear from someone who is not directing in the 2019 calendar year, yet the challenge may best suit someone with […]

Pomona – the Director’s Preview

Director Jason Salmon introduces his latest edgy, urban thriller ahead of its opening on 11 June. This is a dark, dark play – what drew you to it? When I first read the play I was blown away by the themes it was tackling as well as the characters themselves. The themes that it explores are challenging; I’m fascinated by the way it asks genuine questions about the more unpleasant sides of society and makes us question our own beliefs. […]

The Beaux’ Stratagem – the Director’s Preview

Director Dave Hollander introduces his re-imagining of this classic Restoration romp ahead of its opening on 28 May. There are a lot of restoration comedies – what attracted you to this one? Most importantly, I find it funny, especially as it doesn’t really rely on visual gags for comic effect. Instead, George Farquhar’s script is full of wit and fizzes with zingy one-liners, and there’s certainly more than a whiff of innuendo and intrigue. On a more serious note: as […]
