“This season’s common thread relates to the growing communication gap between generations. Both politically and spiritually. There are lots of young people looking at the world through their version of older eyes. There are older artists looking back at their youth and the world it created for them and the rest of us.” Steve Marmion, Artistic Director, Soho Theatre
As the world tries to adjust to its new order and the new reality of post-fake-truth-news politics, Soho Theatre’s spring and summer programme offers some hope for young hearts and old souls. The seasons include the premiere of the 2015 Verity Bargate Award winning Roller Diner – a savage-sweet rock’n’roll tragicomedy by first time playwright Stephen Jackson, and Touch – the fourth exciting new collaboration between Soho Theatre and DryWrite. Inspector Sands bring us a day in the life of an old people’s home through the eyes of three fantastic young performers in The Lounge. Mortality and lust for life collide joyfully in front of us as issues of social care and economic survival loom above the stage.
