Greenwich Theatre regulars, Lazarus Theatre Company, have revealed exclusively to Broadway Baby that their line up for the 2020 season includes Macbeth, Hedda Gabler and Peter Pan.
50 tickets for every performance of all their shows will be available to 16 – 26 year olds for just five pounds
Artistic Director Ricky Dukes told Broadway Baby, “To be back at the Greenwich Theatre for a third year with a season that truly spans the classical repertoire and promises something for everyone is thrilling.”
Opening with Macbeth from 26th February until 7th March, Dukes said “We are particularly excited to welcome back Lazarus Associate Jamie O’Neill to play the title role in what promises to be one of our most bloody and theatrical productions to date.”
From 25th March until 4th April Lazarus give us a new version of Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler by Associate Director Sara Reimers. Intelligent and ambitious Hedda is newly married and suffocating. Her pursuit for her own identity and survival leads to one of the most dramatic climaxes in stage history.
And then it’s ‘second to the right and straight on ‘til morning’ with JM Barrie’s Peter Pan from 17th June until 4th July featuring puppetry, movement and song. Dukes is directing the production and explained “We’re collaborating with puppet Director / Designer Matt Hutchinson on our brand new meta theatrical production of JM Barrie’s truly remarkable Peter Pan. Prepare to fly!”
To mark the 50th anniversary of Greenwich Theatre, Lazarus have launched a ’50 tickets for a fiver’ scheme, meaning 50 tickets for every performance of all their shows will be available to 16 – 26 year olds for just five pounds.
Dukes added “We are proud to continue our Greenwich Made / Greenwich Played programme. Where possible we work with local organisations in the Greenwich borough to support our work, from rehearsal rooms to printing, hospitality to participation. We will be holding community and professional workshops, post show Q&A’s, readings and podcasts throughout the year too. Lazarus 2020 – let’s get stuck in!”
