News about Ink

Almeida Theatre announces Winter 2017 season
The Almeida Theatre has announced their winter 2017 season which includes two world premieres, a rare revival of a Tennessee Williams classic and the West End transfer of two sell-out productions. Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold said: “Spanning the Atlantic and beyond, this season is a timely and limitless interrogation into contemporary cultural anxieties and the power we have over our own lives." The season opens with the world premiere of Mike Barlett’s Albion, a new drama that examines the political state of England through the lens of tangled family politics. Victoria Hamilton, most recently seen playing the Queen Mother in Netflix series The Crown, leads the cast. Rupert Goold directs with design by Miriam Buether. Albion runs from 10 October 2017 until 24 November 2017. Next up is Anne Washburn’s (Mr Burns) adaptation of Emmy award winning 1960s CBS television series The Twilight Zone. The science-fiction fantasy series made during the Cold War has had a seminal influence on popular culture; from Stephen King to Lin-Manuel Miranda, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan to Steven Spielberg, The Simpsons to Black Mirror. The world premiere of The Twilight Zone is directed by Olivier Award-winner Richard Jones, and runs from 5 December 2017 until 27 January 2018. No news on casting. Tennessee Williams’ little revived classic Summer and Smoke will be directed by Rebecca Frecknall. The 1948 drama, first performed in the West End in 2006, is an intoxicating classic about love, loneliness and self-destruction. Patsy Ferran (As You Like It & Treasure Island at the National Theatre) leads an ensemble cast. Summer and Smoke runs from 4 February 2018 until 7 April 2018. The season continues with Figures of Speech, a provocative anthology of digital films exploring the voices behind visionary leadership. The second season of the digital films feature Derek Jacobi, Noma Dumezweni, Russell Tovey, Pearl Mackie and John Heffernan. The Almeida’s critically acclaimed and sell-out productions of Ink and Mary Stuart will transfer for a limited West End season at the Duke of York’s Theatre. James Graham’s Ink starring Bertie Carvel and Richard Coyle will run from 9 September 2017 until 6 January 2018; Mary Stuart starring Juliet Stevenson and Lia Willliams will then follow, running from 13 January 2018 until 31 March 2018.
