The Stage


Sleazy agents, inept actors and forgetting the lines to a play you were not even meant to be in. Welcome to The Actor’s Nightmare.

Imagine if you were thrust on stage to play Hamlet, in front of hundreds of expectant faces, only to forget all of your lines. The Actor’s Nightmare is a true exploration of the worst things that can happen in the entertainment industry.

Tony Award-winning playwright Christopher Durang’s six plays explore theatrical ordeals, with a smattering of nods to classical and contemporary work. This is a real easter egg hunt, especially for the theatre and film buff.

With a female-led creative team and an ensemble cast featuring:Meaghan Martin (Camp Rock), Kate Sumpter (The Little Drummer Girl), and Stefan Menaul (Dirty Dancing, West End), we journey through the ludicrous and lonely world of New York theatre, culminating in Durang’s iconic finale: The Actor’s Nightmare.

Especially curated by 3 hearts canvas into a cohesive, stand-alone piece, the production includes the UK Premiere of some of Durang’s finest works: Mrs SorkenDesire, Desire, DesireBusiness Lunch at the Russian Tea RoomWoman Stand-UpMedea and The Actor’s Nightmare.

Warheads
By Taz Skylar & Ross Berkeley Simpson

Directed by Toby Clarke

15 Aug – 7 Sep

Upon return from his first tour of Afghanistan, 19 year old Miles isn’t quite himself. Noises don’t sound the same. People don’t look the same. Pizza doesn’t taste the same.

The harder he tries to act normal, the harder it gets to be normal. And all his loved ones’ attempts to help him just keep making things worse. 

Warheads is a punchy urban drama based on a true story.

Our Lady of Kibeho

Theatre Royal Stratford East

25 Sep – 02 Nov

Katori Hall’s ★★★★★ ‘astonishing drama’ (The GuardianOur Lady of Kibeho comes to Theatre Royal Stratford East for its London premiere. 

In 1981 at Kibeho College in Rwanda, a young girl claimed to have seen a vision of the Virgin Mary who warned her of the unimaginable: Rwanda becoming hell on earth.

Chekhov in Moscow

The Space

27 Aug – 01 Sep

Summer 1897. The Establishment is being challenged by new talent, but like all revolutions, things aren’t necessarily going to plan.

Based on Chekhov’s short plays and letters, this is a celebration of the great writer’s life, work and wit. Expect battles with authority, troublesome actors and self-doubt in this new frenetic comedy.
