The festival of emerging work continues to expand, now playing across three cities from June 24 to 30. Companies include Sh!t Theatre, Malaprop and Wildcard. Zanetti Production’s brilliantly unsettling The Basement Tapes is one not to miss.
Andrew Scott stars in what promises to be a sexually fluid – bisexual characters have been mentioned – staging of Noel Coward’s play. Matthew Warchus’ production, which also stars Indira Varma and Sophie Thompson, opens on June 25.
Rupert Goold directs David Farr’s adaptation of Thomas Vinterberg and Tobias Lindholm’s Danish film Jagten. It stars Michele Austin, Danny Kirrane and Tobias Menzies, and opens on June 26.
Michael Longhurst’s inaugural production as artistic director of the Donmar Warehouse is a revival of David Greig’s 1994 play, set in a small border town in Europe. It feels like a very pointed choice. With a cast including Shane Zaza, Natalia Tena and Ron Cook, Longhurst’s production opens on June 27.
Stewart Laing is one of Scotland’s most consistently inventive theatre artists. He reunites with playwright Pamela Carter for a new piece for the National Theatre of Scotland, part inspired by the cult 1950s film of the same name, apparently featuring 150,000 ants. It opens at Glasgow’s Tramway on June 28.
