Jay Miller, Artistic Director and Founder, of multi-award winning theatre The Yard is delighted to announce two brand new shows for autumn 2015. BRENDA and LINES give audiences a chance to see two urgent female voices.
The intimate 110 seater warehouse space in Hackney Wick opens for autumn with BRENDA from Tuesday 22 September.
BRENDA is made by two of the UK’s most exciting theatre makers, E V Crowe (Kin, Hero) and Caitlin McLeod (And I and Silence). The play tells the story of two people trying to remain human in the face of extreme deprivation. The play transfers to The Yard following its run at HighTide Festival. Alison O’Donnell will be playing Brenda & Jack Tarlton will play Robert.
This is followed by LINES, a play about the consequences of peacetime. 2015 will be the first year the British Army won’t be at war for over a century, this is a play made in response to that prospect. LINES will portray five young civilians transforming into soldiers – but what do soldiers do when there’s no one to fight?
With explosive electric guitars, angelic choral singing and five young men all desperate to be a hero, LINES is directed by Artistic Director Jay Miller and written by Pamela Carter (Skåne, Confessions of a Justified Sinner) and looks set to follow the sold-out successes of other in-house shows at The Yard, Beyond Caring and The Mikvah Project. Both plays will be on sale at an affordable price with top-priced tickets at just £15.
LINES is kindly supported by the Royal Victoria Hall Foundation, the Dischma Charitable Trust, the Leche Trust and the Goldsmiths’ Company Charity.
£20 Offer Terms and Conditions: The offer is automatically applied when you put at least 1 ticket for BRENDA & 1 ticket for Lines into your basket. The offer is valid until 14 September and is subject to availability. The offer may be withdrawn at The Yard’s discretion.
