Directors' Festival 2018 announced

4 April 2018

Plays announced for the Directors’ Festival, showcasing three directors on the Orange Tree and St Mary’s University’s MA Theatre Directing. They feature a new play by Luke Barnes and revivals of plays by Ella Hickson and Nina Segal in repertoire from 13 - 21 July.

Dominique Chapman directs Ella Hickson's Precious Little Talent, Evangeline Cullingworth directs Nina Segal's In the Night Time (Before the Sun Rises), and Samson Hawkins directs the world premiere of Katie Johnstone by Luke Barnes.

This is the second cohort of a unique Masters course providing the theatre directors of the future with an exciting year-long training based at the Orange Tree. It is the only course of its kind in the country to be predominantly housed within a producing theatre. Last year’s debut year of the course produced a transfer to Soho Theatre of the London premiere of David Ireland’s The End of Hope.

All tickets are £8.50 and you can see 2 plays on the same night for £15.
