We’re excited to announce a couple more shows coming up in the White Bear season!
Following two development readings, the White Bear Theatre will produce Divine Chaos Of Starry Things by writer and broadcaster Paul Mason. The play looks at the lives of 5 women exiled to the colonies after the fall of the Paris Commune. Kennington resident Paul Mason was the Economics Editor of the BBC’s ‘News Night’, and Culture and Digital Editor of ‘Channel 4 News’.
Following the hugely successful production of Round The Horne at The White Bear, which transferred to the West-End and completed 3 number one tours, we are delighted to announce a stage version of the classic radio comedy Men From The Ministry, written by comic legend Brian Cooke, which will run between the 3rd and the 15th of January.
Following its development run at The White Bear, Hurricane Michael – a piece about the meteorological phenomenon Michael Fish, and the untold story of the great storm of 1987 – is enjoying a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival’s première venue ‘The Assembly Rooms’ and garnering 4 star reviews!
The White Bear Theatre and bar is currently undergoing a major refurbishment and will re-open with an exciting and innovative new season in autumn 2016 in a stunning environment. Our intention is to build on the success of the last 25 years, focusing on new writing and lost classics.
The newly appointed White Bear producing team are currently programming shows from May onwards so please get in touch to arrange a meeting so that we can discuss your project by contacting founder and artistic director Michael Kingsbury at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7793 9193.
Following its highly successful development reading at the White Bear we are proud to announce that Scottish Widows, the new play by Grae Cleugh, will be playing at the White Bear from Tues 6th May to Sat 24th May.
Grae Cleugh’s first full-length play F***ing Games was produced at the Royal Court Theatre and was directed by Dominic Cooke. It later won the Laurence Olivier Award for the UK’s Most Promising Playwright. His second play The Patriot was produced at the Tron Theatre, Glasgow.
Scottish Widows is a series of six monologues set in Scotland and based around the theme of widowhood.
