Alan Ayckbourn children’s show to play Soho Theatre
Alan Ayckbourn’s children’s play The Boy Who Fell into a Book is to be produced by Soho Theatre this summer.
Soho’s artistic director Steve Marmion will direct the production, which will run at the venue in daytime slots from July 18 to 29. The Soho Theatre production is part of the London 2012 Festival.
The venue has also announced that A Walk On Part, which is based on the diaries of former MP Chris Mullin, is to transfer to the Arts Theatre. John Hodgkinson is to reprise the role of the politician at the new theatre, where it will run from June 19 to July 14.
The diaries have been adapted for the stage by Michael Chaplin and the play is directed by Max Roberts. A Walk On Part is a Live Theatre and Soho Theatre co-production in association with New Writing North.
