The new Autumn/Winter season at Soho Theatre, announced today, will include, as rumoured, a chance for Londoners to experience Ontroerend Goed’s controversial Edinburgh Fringe show, Audience. From the company responsible for discussion-generating work like Internal and Teenage Riot, Audience makes “a slick and aggressive case for considering how we might conceive of ourselves as an audience: as receivers of, and responders to messages: how we might recognise ourselves – when broadcasted, when scrutinised, when singled-out or brought together.” The piece will run from 6th December 2011 until January 2012.
Other highlights of the forthcoming season include the previously announced Fit and Proper People, a collaborative production with the RSC, and the Terror Season, a festival of horror theatre featuring contributions from Lucy Kirkwood, Julian Barratt, Jack Thorne, Tom Holloway, Carl Grose, and Sarah Louise Young. The Terror season will run 18th October to 5th November.
Rob Young’s Ex, billed as a play with songs will run from 10th November to 3rd December and Blind Summit’s inventive puppet triptych, The Table, another major Edinburgh Fringe success, will run from 10th to 21st January 2012. There will also be another opportunity to see Hideki Noda’s The Bee, first performed at Soho Theatre in 2006 and now on an international tour with original star Kathryn Hunter. The production will run from 24th January to 11th February 2012.
In the theatre’s Upstairs space, there will be opportunities to see further Fringe successes, including Riot by the Wardrobe Ensemble, Hannah Ringham’s Free Show and The Oh Fuck Moment, a conversational piece by Hannah Jane Walker and Chris Thorpe, as well as Nabokov’s Bunny, a Fringe hit from last year.
Public booking for the Autumn/Winter season opens on 5th September 2011. For tickets and further information visit the Soho Theatre website.
