The Summer Season of the Finborough Theatre features three world premieres of new writing including the return of the THEGREATWAR100 series, a rediscovery from John Osborne and, continuing the theatre's commitment to Canadian writing, two plays about politics – a classic and a new play, both in their European premieres.

The Finborough Theatre opens its Summer Season with the world premiere of a new play, Stone Face by Eve Leigh running 17 May–11 June 2016. It runs alongside the London premiere – and the first production in over 40 years – of John Osborne's A Subject Of Scandal And Concern.

Commemorating the centenary of the Battle of the Somme, the Finborough Theatre's THEGREATWAR100 series continues with the world premiere of It Is Easy To Be Dead about war poet Charles Sorley which runs  from 15 June–9 July 2016. It plays concurrently with the European premiere of a Canadian classic, Maggie and Pierre, about Pierre and Maggie Trudeau, the parents of Canada's new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The world premiere of a first play by an exciting new playwright, Amy Ng, Shangri-La plays from 12 July–6 August 2016. The season comes to an end with the controversial new Canadian play, the European premiere of Proud by Michael Healey.
