Park Theatre is having quite a moment. The Finsbury Park venue has recently had an Olivier-nominated play with The Revlon Girl, and it’s currently hosting David Haig’s Pressure, which will be transferring to the West End later this year. And it seems they are continuing this exciting line-up with their July to December 2018 season.

This week, it was announced that Park Theatre will feature a mix of new and existing writing. The season will include six world premieres, one UK premiere, three celebrated revivals and some incredible new writing, including two pieces that were developed through the Park Theatre’s Script Accelerator programme.

Park200 season

Opening the Park200 new season is the world premiere of black comedy End Of The Pier by Danny Robins. It’ll star TV comic and presenter Les Dennis along with Blake Harrison, Nitin Ganatra, and Tala Gouveia. The show will focus on a former comedy presenter who is thrust back into the limelight at the centre of a media frenzy. It’ll run from 11 July – 11 August 2018.

It tells the beloved story of a timid but brilliant singer led by real-life mother and daughter Sally George and Rafaella Hutchinson. The Rise And Fall Of Little Voice runs from 15 August – 15 September 2018.

From 19 September – 20 October 2018, a tale of a confident, intelligent and highly successful neurologist who’s studying dementia and develops the condition herself in the world premiere of The Other Place.
