Deafinitely Theatre will present the first bi-lingual production of Sarah Kane’s 4.48 Psychosis as part of the New Diorama Theatre in London’s latest season.
The production, which will be in English and British Sign Language, will run from September 18 to October 13.
Rhum and Clay will present an adaptation of H.G. Wells’ The War of the Worlds from January 8 to February 9.
This will be the first season in which the New Diorama implements its new model of working, which aims to fully support theatre companies.
The model will see the number of companies the theatre programmes each year reduced from 30 to seven, with each company to receive a five-week run, a full tech week and press and marketing for each show.
Other highlights include Breach Theatre’s It’s True It’s True It’s True, based on a 1612 rape trial that took place in Rome, as well as the PappyShow’s Boys and Kandinsky’s Dinomania.
Nouveau Riche’s Queens of Sheba, Engineer Theatre Collective’s Keep Watching and SpitLip’s Operation Mincemeat also feature in the programme.
The season ends with New Diorama’s Incoming Festival, which runs June 24 to 30, with the line-up to be announced later this year.
Artistic director David Byrne, said: “At New Diorama we’re lucky enough to support many of the UK’s best theatre companies and ensembles.
“This season we’re planning to turn the way Off-West End theatre works completely on its head and show what’s possible when companies are fully supported.
“I’ve had other artistic directors bet me that this new programming model won’t pay off – but when you look at the shows in this season and the ambition of the companies we’re backing, I think it’s paid off already, and then some.”
