Paines Plough, one of the UK’s foremost new writing companies, is bringing a trio of brand new plays to the Southbank, and in a rather innovative style. Their ‘Roundabout’ is a truly mobile theatre space; it can pack up into the back of a lorry, and will be touring the country with a stop in London over the summer at the Southbank Centre’s annual Festival of Love.
Curious what else is on at the Southbank Centre this summer? Check out our full guide to the Southbank Centre Festival of Love 2015.
Paines Plough Roundabout season, 2015
We’re most excited about Our Teacher’s A Troll, a new family comedy (ages 7+) from Dennis Kelly, the writer behind Matilda the Musical. If you’re looking for hard-hitting drama, Lungs by Duncan Macmillan tackles how having a child meshes with responsibility for our environment. The final play in the trio, Alexandra Wood's The Initiate, tells the gripping story of a Somali taxi-driver from East London who tries to rescue a British couple from pirates in his homeland.
We recommend you book now before the Roundabout packs up and heads off elsewhere.
