Jermyn Street Theatre announces 2023 Autumn season including Caroline Quentin in Infamous

Jermyn Street Theatre has unveiled its exciting 2023 autumn season, promising audiences an unforgettable year of live theatre and entertainment.

The season begins on 7th September with the world premiere of April De Angelis’ play about Emma Hamilton, Infamous, starring Caroline Quentin alongside her daughter Rose Quentin. This promises to be an extraordinary portrayal of the life of Emma Hamilton, one of the most famous figures in Georgian society, bursting out of the history books and onto the stage. The show runs from 7 September to 7 October.

Following this is a rare revival of Caryl Churchill’s first play, Owners (12 October – 11 November), directed by Stella Powell-Jones. The wickedly funny play explores power, property, and possession and feels more relevant than ever.

For Christmas, Jermyn Street Theatre has joined forces with the legendary Charles Court Opera to bring to life one of the greatest adventure stories ever told in their boutique pantomime Odyssey: A Heroic Pantomime (23 November – 31 December). This promises to be a madcap new take on Homer’s epic tale, turning it on its head and taking audiences on a mythical, musical (and downright ridiculous) journey.

Preceding these major productions is Jermyn Street Theatre’s Summer programme, Summer Visitors, which welcomes a rich array of visitors to the stage. Highlights include Stefan Bednarczyk’s Stefan And Friends, a series of evenings encompassing the songs of Tom Lehrer, the American classics, and the golden age of Hollywood. Also featured is Abigail Hood’s Park Theatre hit, Spiral, exploring the human need to cling to another person, no matter what the cost, and Richard Stirling’s acclaimed performance as the celebrated photographer and designer Cecil Beaton in Cecil Beaton’s Diaries.

Speaking about the upcoming season Stella Powell-Jones and David Doyle said:

 “It’s been invigorating to assemble this incredible season of work and we’re particularly thrilled to be able to share it with audiences today. We’re excited to continue presenting world premieres from some of our greatest writers – starting this season with a new play by April De Angelis starring Caroline Quentin – as well as continuing to stage rare revivals with a production of Caryl Churchill’s first play which feels startlingly relevant for today’s society. Collaboration is at the heart of the work at Jermyn Street Theatre and we’re thrilled to begin a new partnership with Charles Court Opera to bring their legendary boutique pantomime to the heart of the West End as well as welcoming some of JST’s favourites this summer. This year has got off to an exhilarating start and we’ve been delighted to see record audience numbers at the start of our tenure at the theatre. We’re delighted to share this season with you and invite you to join us for an unforgettable year of theatre.”
