Autumn 2017

Autumn 2017

This autumn season is exceptionally busy for ATC. Busy bees, that’s what we are.

We’re creating two new productions of The Suppliant Women, in Dublin and in London, with community casts from each city now each rehearsing their productions. It takes 3 months from recruitment to opening night in each place that we make the production, as it involves a completely new local cast working alongside our regular professional cast and musicians.

In Dublin, we’re honoured that The Suppliant Women (our acclaimed co-production with the Lyceum, Edinburgh) will be the opening production of the 60th Dublin Theatre Festival.

In London, we’re collaborating with the Young Vic to create the production with the community of Lambeth and Southwark.

Living with the Lights on by Mark Lockyer is on the road for an extensive UK and European tour, from Bristol to Barcelona, and from Edinburgh to Espoo (that’s in Finland, by the way). It open's this week at the HighTide Festival, Aldeburgh

We’re always developing new work – over the summer, we spent time at the National Theatre Studio on a project involving an all Indian cast. More news on that in good time …

And this Autumn, we will be working on two plays in collaboration with our friends at the Austrian Cultural Forum and the Goethe Institute. The first is an exploration of a specially commissioned translation (supported by the Goethe Institut) of the first play by leading European novelist Clemens Setz. There are a few spaces for anyone wishing to attend a sharing of this work-in-progress, hosted by the Austrian Cultural Forum
