A new theatre is set to open in London this Autumn 2022.
The Marylebone Theatre is a new 212 seat venue near Baker Street in London. Formerly the Steiner Hall, the building has been extensively refurnished and remodelled by architects Nicolas Pople.
The theatre’s patrons include Sir Mark Rylance, and the theatre is set to produce its own work, including new writing, and receive visiting companies, under artistic director Alexander J Gifford.
The theatre will open with a new play based on an unfinished Friedrich Schiller play. Dmitry is written by the Marylebone Theatre’s associate writer Peter Oswald, and will be directed by former Young Vic artistic director, and now associate director of Marylebone Theatre, Tim Supple.
The play will run from 29 September to 5 November 2022. Casting is to be announced.
Marylebone Theatre Artistic director Alexander Gifford said: “We are starting as we mean to go on with a production that is bold and important. Dmitry is a gripping rollercoaster ride through the battles and intrigues of the 17th century right to the heart of the politics of our times. It pairs our greatest living verse dramatist, Peter Oswald, with the internationally acclaimed director Tim Supple while drawing on the vision and inspiration of the incomparable Friedrich Schiller. I hope it will launch Marylebone Theatre as an important new presence on the London cultural scene, which develops brilliant new drama whilst also hosting and supporting the best artists in the fields of music, dance and poetry.”
