Soho announces bulging autumn/winter season

First Published 1 September 2011, Last Updated 1 September 2011

Soho theatre has announced an autumn/winter season so full – it boasts 18 new plays and 26 comedy/cabaret shows – that were it to try nibbling a wafer thin mint, it would probably explode.

Artistic Director Steve Marmion, in his second season at the helm of the off-West End theatre, has created an eclectic vision bringing together new pieces, festivals, revivals, Edinburgh hits, seasonal shows and a host of top comedians.

Joining the previously announced football drama Fit And Proper People in the main house season is annual festival of theatrical horror Terror, this year boasting contributions from playwrights including Lucy Kirkwood and Jack Thorne, and The Mighty Boosh’s Julian Barrat.

Edinburgh hits Audience, which challenges the perception of how we interact with live performance, and puppet Fringe First winner The Table also appear in the main house, as do new play with songs Ex and A Walk On Part, the stage adaptation of former MP Chris Mullin’s diaries.

Christmas in the main house features the return of children’s TV adaptation Bagpuss, which also made the trip up to Edinburgh this summer, while Hideki Noda’s The Bee, which was first seen at Soho in 2006, is revived in early 2012.

In the new Soho Upstairs space, London’s theatregoers will be treated to a collection of work that made waves at the Edinburgh Fringe, among them Ikea-set comedy Riot: Wardrobe Ensemble, performance and poetry combination The Oh F**k Moment and Jack Thorne’s youthful drama Bunny.

Soho theatre’s long list of comedians bringing laughter to London’s streets this autumn boasts two of this year’s Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated shows – Josie Long: The Future Is Another Place and Sam Simmons: Meanwhile – alongside acclaimed laughter-mongers including Adam Hills, Richard Herring, Sean Hughes and Tim Key.

Prior to the new season kicking off, Soho is currently hosting the OperaUpClose production of Don Giovanni, which sets Mozart’s opera in early 2000s London, and unravelling game of truth and lies, External.

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 via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

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.
