The Bald Prima Donna- the Director’s Preview

Anna Rubincam introduces The Bald Primadonna by Eugene Ionesco, and talks about her experience directing this show that runs 19 – 23 April 2022. What drew you to directing this play? The Bald Prima Donna doesn’t get performed often outside of university or fringe productions because it’s quite short. Those productions have limited resources, and knowing what SLT is capable of, I wanted to see what we could achieve with a more ambitious set that would enhance the action and […]

Casting Announcement: The Habit of Art

Andy Webb is happy to announce his cast for The Habit of Art by Alan Bennett. The challenge of the auditions was to find a group of real people who could pretend to be actors pretending to be actors.  Well we found them. And the Habit of Art is now beautifully cast by a blend of newcomers and veterans. I’d like to thank everyone who came to the auditions. As always much talent had to be disappointed.  But I know […]

Casting Announcement: Hapgood

Lisa Thomas is very pleased to announce her cast for Hapgood. I am so excited to be directing this, perhaps Tom Stoppard’s most underrated play. A large number of strong actors auditioned for many of the roles and there were some very tough choices to be made. It’s great to welcome three people entirely new to SLT: Jude, Alex and Calla, as well as some absolute stalwarts: whisper it, but Jack King’s first acting role at SLT was 25 years […]

Iron – the Director’s Preview

Lily Ann Green introduces Iron by Rona Munro and talks about her experience directing this show that’s running 5 – 9 April, 2022. What was it that attracted you to this play?

Do Not Disturb – the Director’s Preview

Martin Copland-Gray introduces Do Not Disturb, his directorial debut outing at SLT, an intimate two-hander which takes place in a US Midwest hotel room. What was it that attracted you to this play? It was 2002 and I was an X-Files fan, smitten with Gillian Anderson. I found out she was starring in a play called What the Night is For with Roger Allam at the Comedy Theatre. I bought a ticket and came down from the Midlands to see […]
