Autumn Season at Theatre503

Published by: Carolin Kopplin on 13th Jun 2015 | View all blogs by Carolin Kopplin

First up is Bea Roberts' And Then Come the Nightjars, a chronicle of an English farm's struggle following the 2001 Foot and Mouth crisis. It is tender and angry and hilarious in turn, directed by Paul Robinson.

The other award-winner is in striking contrast. Valhalla by Paul Murphy is a dark and devastating piece about science and humanity and that elusive territory where the two elide. This profound story of man vs nature will be brought to life by Jo McInnes. His recent work includes the Midsummer Mischief season at the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Then we have Jon Brittain's Rotterdam. This bitter-sweet comedy about sexual identity and love is the culmination of Jon’s six year relationship with the theatre and continues the season's celebration of in-house talent. You may remember him as the co-creator of 503’s Maggie Thatcher Queen of Soho and a previous 503 in-house writer.

And finally, making a riotous return for the Christmas period are the award-winning comedy trio and new 503 Associate company Sleeping Trees with Cinderella and the Beanstalk. Back by popular demand after its sell-out success last year this is a festive treat suitable for family members young (ideal for 6+), old and everything in-between.
