A Single Man Park Theatre

More shows announced for Park Theatre’s Summer / Autumn 2022 season including A Single Man and 9 Circles

The Park Theatre in North London has announced its new season of productions including Maureen Lipman in Rose, and a new adaptation of Christopher Isherwood’s A Single Man.

Psychological thriller 9 Circles will run from 29 June to 23 July at the Park Theatre, from House of Cards writer Bill Cain and The Shark is Broken director Guy Masterson. Based on true events, the action is through the eyes of a repatriated US Army Private, now an alleged war criminal, and asks how a soldier can be trained as a cold-blooded killing machine while clinging on to the threads of his humanity. 9 Circles promises to be a Dantesque descent into the conundrums, contradictions and hypocrisies of war.

Next up is the previously announced show Monster from 27 July to 20 August, which is a play set in Glasgow about the need for love, the powerful forces behind random acts of violence, and the hold the mistakes of the past have on the future.

Their Summer season is completed by a show for young audiences, as Jonny the pigeon searches for his guitar in Jonny Feathers The Rock and Roll Pigeon from 29 July to 13 August 2022. It’s the day of Jonny’s big gig but he’s lost his guitar and is on the way to find it assisted by Vicky the Vixen, Bale the Snail and many more, in this fun show for 4 – 8 year olds.

The Autumn season kicks off with Dame Maureen Lipman starring in a revival of Martin Sherman’s play Rose, from 13 September to 15 October 2022. The play originally premiered at the National Theatre in 1999, and Lipman performed a lockdown version of the play last year, on the stage of the Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester. The play will run there before heading to London.

Following Rose is the world premiere of a new adaptation of Christopher Isherwood’s A Single Man, running from 19 October to 26 November 2022. This darkly amusing study of grief, love and loneliness centres on college professor George grieving the death of his long-term partner Jim in 1960s California. Isherwood’s novel was famously filmed by Tom Ford in an acclaimed adaptation starring Colin Firth.

The adaptation is by Simon Reade, and the play will be directed by Philip Wilson.

Currently playing at the Park Theatre is The End of the Night (until 28 May 2022), based on a true story about the end of World War II. And coming up is The Still Room (1 – 26 June 2022), the world premiere of the dark, sexy and funny new play.
