SPRING THEATRE HIGHLIGHTS 2019

April 2nd, 2019 | by Ella Stern

SPRING THEATRE HIGHLIGHTS 2019

The 2019 theatre season is very much in full swing and, as ever, London’s South Bank has world class productions on offer. From Oscar recipients performing work by Pulitzer Prize winners, to family adventures starring a singing tabby cat, be sure to get your tickets now for these fantastic works.

 

  • All My Sons at The Old Vic

    Considered to be one of Arthur Miller’s best works along with Death of a Salesman, The Crucible  and A View from the Bridge, this star studded production is likely to be the talk of the town this Spring. Starring master of Broadway and greatest-movie-president-ever Bill Pullman alongside double Academy Award winner Sally Field, this one of the few instances where one can legitimately describe the cast as “Hollywood Legends” without being accused of hyperbole. If you see this show you will like it. You will really like it.

    The Old Vic
  • Tabby McTat at the Southbank Centre

    Playing at the Southbank Centre as part of their Easter programme - which offers free and ticketed events for all the family - Tabby McTat is a heart-warming, toe-tapping tale (or tail) about home, friendship and moggies.

    From the creative minds of the much loved and renowned Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, the team behind little-known cult classic The Gruffalo, Tabby McTat will take the whole family on a thrilling adventure as the eponymous Tabby sets out to find her missing best friend, Fred.

    And once you’ve had enough cat tunes and tuna, be sure to head to the Southbank Centre’s giant sandpits to have some adventures of your own.

  • Dog Without Feathers at the Southbank Centre

    Even if you don’t know her name, you will certainly know of the work of Deborah Colker. In 2009 she was the creative mind behind Cirque du Soleil’s Ovo and in 2016 she directed 6,000 volunteers in the opening ceremony of the Rio Olympics (her hometown, no less). Now her company bring an epic and moving piece exploring life in Brazil to London for four performances only.

    A kinetic interpretation of João Cabral de Melo Neto’s mythic masterpiece Cão sem Plumas, this extraordinary piece explores the extremes of human and global existence and how we simultaneously depend on and destroy the world around us.

    Winner the prestigious Prix Benois de la Danse in 2018, this is contemporary dance at its most profound.

  • On the High Road at the Southbank Centre

    People often describe companies as ‘multi-disciplinary’. But all groups whither when compared to the truly amazing range of people employed to bring the Clod Ensemble’s works to the stage. Joining the usual roster of actors, singers and dancers, the company also works with medical students, doctors, architects and full orchestras to bring their creations to life. And their spirit for collaboration continues with On the High Road which features the award winning talents of folk singer Thomas McCarthy, soprano Melanie Pappenheim and cabaret icon George Heyworth.

    Part play, part gig, part dance, On the High Road is a show like no other.

  • Top Girls at the National Theatre

    There is no other way to put it – Caryl Churchill is one England’s greatest living playwrights. Her vast back catalogue explores rich, complex themes in unique and surprising ways. Pick any of her plays and one will find work that is always thought provoking and regularly inspirational.

    Top Girls, which premiered at the Royal Court in 1982, remains one of Churchill’s most revered works and makes a welcome return to London.

    Come for the famous opening scene, stay for one of the best plays of the last 50 years.

  • Downstate at the National Theatre

    Co-produced by New York collective Steppenwolf Theatre Company, Downstate asks hard questions and, as with so many great plays exploring the complexities of the modern world, offers no clear answers or resolutions.

    In downstate Illinois, four men live together in sheltered accommodation. All four of the men are convicted sex criminals, and all four live with their crimes. Some seek to be reformed, some continue to deny any wrongdoing. But when one of their victims arrives, the legacy of abuse and the process of forgiveness are pulled into stark and uncompromising view.

    Written by Pulitzer Prize winner Bruce Norris, Downstate is essential, urgent and compelling theatre. Be sure to see it before it closes at the end of April.
