The new Autumn Season of the Finborough Theatre entails new writing, unique rediscoveries and music theatre.

The season features five brand new plays – a 60th anniversary season from the National Youth Theatre including new plays by two Olivier Award-nominated playwrights and the first ever stage production of Mohsin Hamid’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist; as well as two world premieres about the refugee and immigrant experience from award-winning North American dramatists. The Finborough also presents a unique rediscovery – the first UK production in nearly 90 years of Noël Coward's Home Chat; and the UK premiere of the hit Off Broadway musical Adding Machine: A Musical.

The new season opens with a new writing from the National Youth Theatre, playing 9–27 August 2016, celebrating the NYT's 60th anniversary: James Fritz's The Fall, Bola Agbaje’s Bitches, and the first ever stage production of Mohsin Hamid’s Man Booker Shortlisted The Reluctant Fundamentalist.

Noël Coward’s Home Chat receives its first UK production since its premiere in 1927 in September, running alongside the world premiere of the award-winning The Great Divide by acclaimed new American playwright Alix Sobler.

The UK premiere of Jason Loewith and Joshua Schmidt’s multi-award winning Off-Broadway musical Adding Machine: A Musical, based on the play by Elmer Rice, plays from 28 September–22 October 2016, concurrently with the UK debut of multi-award-winning Canadian playwright Anusree Roy’s Trident Moon.

You can also see Finborough productions elsewhere with My Eyes Went Dark at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in August, and Operation Crucible at the Sheffield Crucible in September.
