Tim Pigott-Smith to appear in Park Theatre’s autumn season

by -

Tim Pigott-Smith is to star in Stroke of Luck by Larry Belling as part of the Park Theatre’s new season this autumn.

The play, which will receive its premiere at the recently opened north London venue, runs from January 29 to March 2, 2014 in the theatre’s main 200-seat space.

Opening the season will be a production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night directed by Lyric Hammersmith artistic director Sean Holmes.

The show will be created by theatre company Filter and runs from September 24 to October 6.

Following this, Park Theatre’s artistic director Jez Bond will direct the world premiere of Adult Supervision, a play by the venue’s writer in residence Sarah Rutherford. It will run from October 8 to November 3.

Paul Herzberg’s The Dead Wait will be presented by theatre company Snapdragon Productions from November 6 to December 1. It will be directed by Joe Harmston.

Meanwhile the venue’s smaller space – Park 90 – will host productions including Sympathy Pains by Rosalind Adler from September 3 to 22, which transfers from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and Fog by Tash Fairbanks and Toby Wharton from October 22 to November 10, as part of its national tour.

Bond said: “Since our opening in May, we have been overwhelmed by the support for the new venue, both within the local community and across the capital. I’m thrilled to announce our new season today – a diverse mix of new work, innovative and exciting partnerships with new and established companies, and the cream of British theatrical talent across both our spaces.”
