Dear Future Generation, an original film written & performed by Kiln Theatre 16-18 young company

Published 4 September 2020

Following the success of the 19-25 Young Company’s virtual sharing of their work-in-progress, Honeymoon, Kiln Theatre will screen Dear Future Generation – an original film written and performed by Kiln Theatre’s 16-18 Young Company. The work on the project began pre-lockdown, and has continued over the past months taking place virtually. The film can be viewed for free at www.KilnTheatre.com/Dear-Future-Generation until 31 August 2021.

Indhu Rubasingham said today, “I have been deeply impressed by the hard work and talent of our Young Companies and everyone involved during this time. These projects started pre-COVID in our theatre building, then after much re-organising and thinking moved online, a form that none of us had done before and resulted in astonishing, innovative work. I have been personally emotionally moved by the power of these voices, their commitment and their generosity in reminding me, in these difficult times, about the vitality and importance of theatre. Their work has given me confidence that the future of our industry and our country are in good hands.”

Head of Creative Engagement Jenny Batt said today, “The Young People and Creative Team working on this project have shown the biggest and most inspiring determination to stay creative and stay making art in this time. Their self-belief, talent and drive has resulted in a beautiful, and urgent film we are wildly proud of. Thank you for sharing your art and inspiring all of us.”

Our soapbox

All we ask is that you listen

A poem, a manifesto, a dream of the future, Dear Future Generation is all about the mad world we’re in and how to reset the rules.

As the Kiln Theatre’s vibrant and innovative young company explore what it means to be a game-changer, past present and future, they tell us what it is they want to see changed through the medium of spoken word, music and theatre. From the Martin Luther Kings to the fiercest drag queens, the company take this chance to investigate what came before, and what change they want to see in the future, through the lens of their generation, in ourselves, our neighbourhood and our society.

Kiln Theatre bring you joyful, electric performances from the next generation of game-changers.

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
