The Park Theatre will host the London premiere of Robert Holman’s critically acclaimed drama Jonah And Otto this autumn.
The play, which was first seen at the Royal Exchange Theatre in 2008, plays from 28 October (press night 29 October) until 23 November, and spans the course of a single day, when two men share their solitude and reveal their secrets.
From disagreeing about women, lust and guilt to questioning the power of magic, redemption and the price of freedom, Jonah And Otto reveals how each man sees himself more clearly through the eyes of the other.
The production will be directed by Tim Stark, who previously directed Holman’s Rafts And Dreams at the Royal Exchange Theatre. Holman’s other plays include the poetic triptych Making Noise Quietly, which was staged at the Donmar Warehouse in 2012, and The Thousand Stars In The Sky, a collaboration with Simon Stephens and David Eldridge performed at the Lyric Hammersmith.
Jonah And Otto will open at the Finsbury Park venue’s largest auditorium Park200 following David Hare’s The Vertical Hour, which plays from 23 September to 26 October.
