Autumn Season at The Rep
Roxana Silbert, Artistic Director of Birmingham Repertory Theatre recently announced plans for the theatre’s 2018 Autumn and Winter season. Speaking of the forthcoming programme, Roxana said: “New work is the life blood of theatre and The REP is honoured to be working with the best writers of their generation with 11 new plays across our three stages of which six will be premièred at The REP”.
The first world première of the season is Rebus: Long Shadows, the latest story in Ian Rankin’s legendary detective series which will be told exclusively on stage.
A brand new staging of The Messiah starring Hugh Dennis, Lesley Garrett and John Marquez will be produced and opened by The REP, ahead of a UK tour and West End run.
Other highlights include, Pop Music, a euphoric, nostalgic theatre party for anyone who has ever been a d*ck on the dance floor ; All You Need Is LSD, an exhilarating and original comedy by one of the UK’s finest playwrights, Leo Butler. Find yourself trapped amongst objects and clutter in the world premiere of Stuff, a play created through interviews with self-identified hoarders.
Elsewhere in the season are the previously announced smash-and-grab hit The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, Bryony Lavery’s adaptation of Alice Sebold’s The Lovely Bones and the festive spectacular The Wizard of Oz for the festive season!
