A new revival of Simon Stephens’ One Minute is to be staged at the Vaults in Waterloo.

The play, produced by theatre company Delirium, will run at the underground London venue from September 7 to October 3, with a press night on September 9.

Directed by Oliver Kaderbhai and Matthew Churcher, the production will star Kaderbhai, Cait Davis, Rebecca Killick and Rose Riley.

Speaking about the new production, Stephens claimed One Minute’s themes of “loss and dislocation” were just as relevant as when he first wrote it back in 2002.

He explained: “It’s a play about the need to connect with humans in a city. It’s a play about loneliness. It’s a play about London. A decade on from its original life this need and these themes resonate in this city as deeply as they have ever done.”

Delirium’s production will feature lighting design by Alex Lewer, sound design by Will Tonna and video design Colin Smith, as well as music composed by David M Saunders.
